Jordan Drops Quarantine Requirement

Jordan has implemented fairly strict entry requirements, but recently relaxed the mandatory quarantine requirement. However, Jordan is still being extremely cautious.

A negative PCR test is required for all U.S. citizens to enter. Another test will be given upon arrival and will cost $40 per person. That fee is collected at check-in before departing for Jordan.

This news will likely be exciting to many travelers eager to visit Jordan, known for having some of the most incredible places to explore in the Middle East. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Petra and the Dead Sea come to mind. These areas are open to visitors but guests must be prepared to mask up! As always, please be respectful of local laws and customs if you do choose to travel. The safety and health of locals should always be a top priority.

What do travelers need to enter?

  • All travelers must bring a negative result from a COVID-19 PCR-test. This PCR test needs to be taken within 72 hours of departure.
  • Upon arrival, all passengers over 5 years old will receive a mandatory PCR test. It will cost $40 per person and will be collected at check-in prior to departure for Jordan.
  • Jordan had a website for all entering travelers to submit forms. This is no longer being used. Another site and/or form will likely take its place. Check this site regularly for updates.
