The sources said that the decision does not include children who were born before November 2 of last year, because the time period that was available to their families is sufficient to finish their procedures and establish a residence for them, before the start of the Corona pandemic, which caused government agencies to close and work for a long time.
 
The sources indicated that children who are not included in the decision should their families apply to the competent residency affairs department of the breadwinner’s housing to settle the status of the newborn and pay the fines they owe to grant them valid residence in the country.
