Three hundred Burmese families are being issued with residency cards here after correcting their status at Makkah’s personal status court.

This is out of 9,000 families that have been identified by the government for residency status, according to Abdullah Qarrash, chairman of the body set up to oversee the correction process.

Qarrash was quoted as saying by local media recently that 10 judges have been assigned to deal with these cases. The families are able to get their documents processed from Sunday to Wednesday, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. He said there have been 145,000 residency cards issued, out of 249,000 applications, free of charge. These had all taken place at the city’s courts, in coordination with various government agencies.

The committee overseeing the process is being monitored by Prince Faisal bin Mohammad, the undersecretary of Makkah governorate. A report is sent weekly on progress to Makkah Gov. Prince Khalid Al-Faisal, he said.
