150 Jordanians approved for hotel work in Eilat

Israel’s population and immigration authority approves a force of 150 Jordanian hotel workers in the southern resort city of Eilat, to replace asylum-seeker workers who have been taken to the Holot detention facility.

The plan, first approved by the cabinet in June, will enable the Jordanians to work only in hotels — not as service providers in other industries.

At the end of every day, they will return to Jordan through the nearby Wadi Araba Border Crossing.

Eventually, up to 1,500 Jordanians could receive permits to work in Eilat.
