COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 is being effectively monitored, controlled and treated in Jordan. The Ministry of Health and Royal Medical Services are actively monitoring the situation and working with the World Health Organization and other international partners. We know that COVID-19 remains top of mind for many travelers. Jordan has taken a lead to get ahead of the curve and took extreme quarantine measures early on to protect citizens. Jordan has been successful in flattening the curve, maintaining it while making sure that citizens were also taken care of. 

Jordan Tourism Board and our industry partners will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in other countries closely and assess potential impacts in our region. We are committed to providing updates as new information becomes available.

While the world today is clouded in uncertainty, we believe in the allure of travel. Whether you have an upcoming trip, you've postponed your plans, or you’re thinking about a future journey, it's still okay to dream. 

Jordan will be ready when you are.
