After canceling the guardian requirement, 14,000 Saudi women obtained passports

The General Directorate of Passports in Saudi Arabia opened on Thursday the first halls to facilitate procedures for obtaining passports for women in Riyadh.

The General Directorate of Passports in Saudi Arabia, Major General Suliman Al-Yahya, said that this step of the General Directorate of Passports in the Riyadh region, comes as a continuation of the strategy currently in place to distribute its services, by opening new outlets to serve the citizen and resident easily, to reach all segments of society, and to serve them as required.

The General Directorate of Passports revealed that there are 9,000 Saudi women obtained passports through the “Absher” electronic system, after the decision, issued last August, to amend the documents of travel and civil status, which gives women the right to obtain the passport itself, while 5,000 Saudi women got the passport through the paper submission in Passport offices in various Saudi cities.
