DUBAI, 2 AUGUST - Turn in Saudi Arabia: women can apply for a passport and travel abroad without the prior consent of a man. In general, the necessary approval came from the husband or father, but there were also cases in which male children gave consent to their mothers. The new law, published today, extends to "all citizens" without distinction of gender the possibility of applying for a passport or traveling abroad. The news was received with great favor on the Saudi social media.
