Where can you get a covid PCR test in Jordan?

The government (ministry of health) updates a list of approved locations for covid testing – https://corona.moh.gov.jo/ar/page/1057/Laboratories. The site is only available in Arabic, however the list is provided at the bottom of this page in English. All locations can be found on google maps.

Covid testing process

Various different facilities have opened, predominantly in Amman. Home visits are possible as well as testing within the lab test sites. Although many sites have become available the drive through sites are advised as they limit contact between patients.

Drive through facilities have been created for efficient mass testing without interaction between patients. Process takes around 15 minutes in total with registration and sample. Appointments are not possible at these locations and waiting time is minimal.

Cost of Covid testing in Jordan

The government has set a price range for PCR test in Jordan to between JOD25 and JOD30. The health ministry monitors test sites and all prices should fall within this range. Most commonly each test is JOD28.

How long to get PCR results

Results are provided same day, usually within a few hours of the test taking place. Each laboratory has its own procedure but most provide results sent by PDF. Results are communicated through either SMS, whatsapp or email. Check with your chosen lab the available options for receiving results.

Covid test locations in Jordan

Currently test sites are primarily located in Amman. Arrivals at Queen Alia Airport in Amman are being tested by #3 Quest Lab. Arrivals at King Hussein Airport in Aqaba are being tested by #4 Bio Lab. Some of the larger laboratories have multiple locations.

Testing outside of Amman has not developed with most people required to travel to larger centers. Aqaba has testing facilities and for people looking for test locations outside of Amman would be best to seek guidance from the larger networks of laboratories in the list.
