Latest Update: September 7, 2020

After months of shutting down to curb the spread of the coronavirus, Jordan will finally reopen its borders to International visitors on September 8th. The move is part of the country’s plan to revive its tourism economy, which was hit badly since the start of the pandemic.

However, the Jordanian government will only allow travelers from low-risk countries. All travelers will be asked to present proof of having tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours before their scheduled flight. Here’s everything you need to know about Jordan’s reopening.

September 7 update: Jordan will resume international flights on Sept. 8. Authorities use a three-tier color-coded system in classifying countries according to its COVID-19 activity. Green means low disease activity, yellow has moderate, while red has high. 

Who Can Enter Jordan?

To ensure the safety of its citizens and all visitors, Jordan will only allow travelers from low-risk countries to enter once it opens its borders.

Green List: COVID-19 PCR Test Required


Yellow & Red List: COVID-19 PCR Test Required, and 14 day quarantine


Travelers may be asked to show proof of having stayed at least two weeks in the countries listed above. According to Jordan’s Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission, the list will be reviewed and updated every two weeks, as per the developing pandemic situation in each country.

Are There Any Tests and/or Quarantine Upon Arrival?

Firstly, there is airport testing upon arrival in Jordan.  The citizen should pay 40 JOD in advance. Please expect to wait for 2 to 3 hours at the airport for the results to process.  If there is a positive PCR result, passengers will not enter Jordan and needs to return to their departure city.

Secondly, once regular commercial international flights resume, passengers arriving from “green countries” (listed below), are expected to face up to 14 days of quarantine, but the exact requirements remain subject to change.  Passengers departing from all other countries (non-green countries) must adhere to a 14-day government-sponsored quarantine followed by 14 days of home quarantine.

Other Travel Requirements

When visiting Jordan, travelers must adhere to the following requirements before they will be allowed entry.

  • They must present a negative result of a PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure.
  • Visitors must also pay for and fill out an online health declaration form at least 24 hours before departure. It will cost 40 Jordanian dinars or around 56 USD. The form must be filled out completely and anyone who will be caught providing false information will be fined 10,000 dinars or 14,000 USD.
  • Travelers may be asked to undergo another Covid-19 test upon arriving at the airport.
  • Travel insurance must be presented at immigration.
  • All tourists must download Jordan’s contact-tracing app before flying into the country. It must be activated during the entire time that they are in Jordan.

Preventive Health Measures

As early as June 6, Jordan’s tourist attractions have opened for domestic tourism, welcoming locals and expats residing in the country. Bars and clubs have also reopened while sporting events resumed behind closed doors. Churches and mosques have also opened but must adhere to rules imposed by the Ministry of Health.

Jordan’s Ministry of Health has imposed the following preventative measures for all visitors to follow:

  • Wash hands regularly with soap and water.
  • Avoid kissing and shaking hands during meetings.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when sneezing.
  • Dispose all used wipes safely.
  • Avoid direct contact with anyone showing symptoms.
  • After touching public surfaces, avoid touching your mouth, nose, and eyes.
