I have just moved to Amman two weeks ago with my partner who is working here. I am currently looking for work as well, but in the interim I want to get the process surrounding my residency stared. We are planning to stay two years, so continuously renewing a tourist visa is not my first choice. If anyone can point me in the right direction for how to go about obtaining residency (without a trust fund in the back or a national guarantor) I would be so thankful! I have been offered a job beginning in August with a private school here but have not decided whether to accept and would like to get my residency via a different channel---any thoughts as to whether this is possible?
