Jordan has announced it is opening for partial tourism, with safety measures to allow for the recommencement of international transfer passengers, via Amman Airport, reports Innovative Travel. To transit Amman Airport all clients must provide proof of a negative PCR test 72 hours prior to arrival, with a maximum transit time not exceeding 10 hours.
For visitors entering Jordan, pre boarding proof of a negative PCR Test within 72 hours of departure and health insurance are required. A further negative PCR test is paid for upon arrival at a cost of 28JOD (approximately US$40) per person.
The local AMAN mobile app for Covid-19 tracing must be installed onto each visitor’s mobile phone. All passenger flights to and from the UK remain cancelled.
Innovative Travel’s managing director, Robyn Galloway says it is encouraging to see the Jordanian Government’s recognition of the importance of tourism and the development of a pro-active plan to open the borders gradually, to assist citizens reliant on tourism revenue.
Jordan launched its Covid-19 vaccination campaign in mid-January and is amongst the first 40 countries to provide vaccinations with a plan to vaccinate all citizens as soon as possible.
