ARDD-JONAF Report on the New Legal Requirements for Regulating the Work of Local and Foreign Associations in Jordan


The Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development (ARDD) is following up on several civil society issues to promote the work of Jordan NGOs Forum (JONAF) and its member and affiliated associations. In this brief report, ARDD reviews the most significant updates on the legal status of associations. Since 2023 to date, many decisions have been issued and several measures have been taken that are directly related to local and international organizations registered within the Register of Associations in Jordan, whether they are local associations of different kinds or branches of international associations. These procedures and requirements exclude United Nations agencies, organizations established under a special law, non-profit companies, and organizations registered under a direct agreement with the Jordanian government.

Gratitude and appreciation are due to the Ministry of Social Development, the Register of Associations, and all the relevant authorities for their constant efforts to develop, update, and simplify procedures for associations. ARDD and JONAF would like to offer support hereby by elaborating on these developments to the concerned parties, in addition to highlighting some notes to work on to facilitate implementation and follow-up.
