Saudi women no longer need permission of male guardian to travel

Saudi Arabia announced on Thursday new procedural change allowing Saudi women above 21 to obtain passports, renew them, and travel freely without the permission of a male guardian.
The changes state that women now have equal rights to men when it comes to traveling, adding that travel permits are no longer needed from a male guardian unless they’re for child custody, minors, or moving bodies of the dead.
Saudi women can now be the legal guardian of a family, the changes stated, while only men were allowed to be so in the past.
When it comes to changes in the department of Civil Status, a woman’s residency is not based on her husband’s anymore.
Amendments to the Civil Status Law included that women can report births. The amendments called for the “parents of the child” to report the birth after it had previously been limited to the “father of the child”.
