As of Tuesday, Jordan has officially reopened its borders to international flights after a six-month closure due to the pandemic. International flights are now allowed to depart from and land at Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, but actually visiting the country, however, won’t be easy.
A new screening laboratory has been installed at the airport where all inbound passengers will undergo a PCR test. Then, they will be asked to wait two to three hours while their test results come in. All arrivals must fill out a travel declaration form, have valid medical insurance for the duration of their stay that covers COVID-19 treatment, and install the Aman application for contact tracing. The mandatory PCR test costs $56, to be paid online before arrival.
