Getting to Jordan
When will the country list be updated? 
The government has announced that they will review the country list every two weeks. The country list page reflects the date of the last announcement and historic changes to each list.
 
When will they add more flights from my country?
The number of direct flights available has been rapidly increasing. Royal Jordanian announced that they plan to connect Jordan to all green listed countries. Ryanair has begun offering low cost flights to Jordan. Go to the flights page to see all available connections.
 
What is the process for countries not listed?
At this stage, there has been no official directive for countries not categorised. As the list is based on where you travel from and not your nationality, there have been reports that arrivals who spent time in unlisted countries will be processed as if they were travelling from a red country.
 
Can I transit through a different colour country?
Visitors from green countries who transit through yellow or red countries, will be required to isolate according to the colour of the country they transit through. Travellers coming from red or yellow countries can transit through green countries, however they will be processed based on the highest risk country they’ve been in the last 14 days.
 
How long does the process take at the airport?
Travellers should expect to wait 2 hours from landing, until being able to leave the airport. Majority of this time is for the process of the PCR test.
 
What happens if you test positive at Amman airport?
If your PCR test result is positive, you will be transported to a hospital for assessment before undergoing mandatory quarantine.
 
Can I be in multiple different green countries and still be exempt from isolation?
Yes. Provided you stay the full duration of the last 14 days in green countries, you are exempt from isolation.
 
What documents will be checked at departures check in?
They will check for:
  • The QR code you received when you completed the health declaration form.
  • A document showing a negative PCR test result within the last 120 hours.
 
What documents will be checked at QAIA on arrival in Jordan?
They will recheck the documents that were already checked at departure. Furthermore they will check that you have downloaded the Aman safety app, and that you have a valid health insurance.
 
Where can I download the Aman safety app? 
For Android:
For iPhone:
 
Where can I access the health declaration form?

The form is available online at https://www.visitjordan.gov.jo/form/

What aspects of my health insurance are checked? 
On arrival the check is solely that you have a travel insurance in your name. It is your responsibility to make sure that it covers any costs that you may incur.
 
Isolation
Where can I stay for home isolation?
Individuals are permitted to select their own location to self isolate. Everyone required to isolate must provide an address where they intend to remain for the duration of their required isolation in Jordan. During this time, you are not permitted to leave your accommodation. All meals and necessities must be delivered to you.
 
Will the government arrange transport to my isolation location?

No, individuals are required to arrange their own transport. Transport should be directly to the registered isolation address.

How do you get food when you are self isolating?
All food must be delivered to you address. Most restaurants in Amman offer home delivery services. Both Carrefour and Safeway provide home delivery of groceries.
 
What to expect in Jordan
Are all the tourist sites open?
All government operated sites around the country are open. Most privately owned accommodation and tourist services have also reopened. Visitors can expect a different experience without crowds at major sites in Petra, Jerash and Wadi Rum.
 
Are buses operating around the country?
Yes, all public transport is operational. However, as always, Jordan’s intercity public transport network is limited and many services operate once full, rather than on set time schedule. Therefore, limited departures are available. In most cases, visitors find it more convenient and economical to rent a car for the duration of their stay outside Amman.
 
Is the atmosphere in Jordan back to normal?
The government is advocating the use of mask in crowded spaces, as well as social distancing. A midnight curfew is in place for business. Cinemas, teaters and other entertainment venues remain closed. Otherwise Jordan is steadily returning towards normality.
 
Is there a risk that Jordan will go into lockdown or close the airport again?
The government has announced that an effort to eliminate the virus would cause greater negative impacts than the strategy of containing the virus. As such, measures to control transmission will be taken. They have subsequently announced that they will not return to lockdown or completely closed borders.
 
Are masks mandatory in Jordan?
Masks are mandatory during your flight and inside the airport terminal. Throughout Jordan masks should be used in indoor spaces and are recommended for use whenever social distancing is not possible.
