Another step towards empowering women!

This week, the Saudi Ministry of Justice announced that it would be offering electronic marriage contracts as part of its plan to be more efficient and to have more automated services available to the general public. This new online system is seen as not only another key move towards the digitalization of government services and entities in Saudi Arabia but also as a step towards improving the rights of women in the Kingdom.

With this e-marriage registration system, couples will now be able to fill their respective data directly on the Najez portal. The system also ensures that any bride-to-be is a willing participant in the upcoming marriage as her direct approval will be needed, and the portal also gives full access to a range of legal services.
