Traveling abroad still remains a difficult proposition these days, but if you’re itching to visit the Middle East, Jordan is making it slightly easier. As of January 26, 2021, passengers arriving to Jordan are no longer required to quarantine for seven days, making the prospect of vacation much more feasible. Travelers do, however, still have to show proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure and undergo a second PCR test upon arrival at their own expense (approximately $40).

Starting now, quarantine will only be required for those who test positive for COVID-19 upon arrival. In addition to the testing requirements, travelers must also have valid health insurance covering any COVID-19 treatment that may become necessary during their trip.

Note that incoming travelers will be asked to fill out a health form prior to boarding their flight to Jordan.

A nightly curfew remains in place for tourists and residents alike, beginning at 11 AM for individuals and 11 PM for commercial establishments. From the time curfew begins until 6 AM the following morning, individuals are required to stay home, unless going to the airport.
