The electronic identification card system for persons with disabilities is expected to be issued during the current year, according to Ayoub Al-Lawzi, director of identification cards and services at the Supreme Council for Persons with Disabilities.
Al-Lawzi told Al-Mamlaka that the system will allow people with disabilities to issue the card electronically through the official website of the Supreme Council for Persons with Disabilities, noting that the card is still in the experimental stage at present.
The council started issuing the identification card on July 31, 2022. It is estimated that the number of people who obtained this card during the pilot phase is about 4,000, according to Al-Lawzi.
The card aims to “provide special data for people with disabilities on the (smart) civil status card,” when these people refer to “government agencies and the private sector to obtain their services and privileges,” al-Lawzi explained.
The card also aims to “unify the diagnostic report on people with disabilities,” according to Al-Lawzi.
The number of persons with disabilities in Jordan is 1.2 million, based on the figures of the Department of Statistics issued in 2015.
