Jordan resumed to foreign flights following a few false starts. About six months after the coronavirus pandemic, the country’s largest airport in Amman reopened its foreign operations.

International flights will still arrive at and depart from Jordan’s capital Queen Alia International Airport, amid its reduced size. There are modern protection steps like compulsory face masks and identity markers for passengers and workers.

Installations of Covid-19 screening facilities to monitor all incoming passengers for the virus are ready. There is also a wide waiting area where travelers may wait for their test results approximately 2-3 hours before entering the country. In the region of departures, self-service check-in devices were built to minimize passenger-airport conflict.

Rules in place at the airport

A travel declaration form that can be listed here must be fulfilled for anyone who arrives in Jordan. For the length of their residency, international visitors must be protected by valid coronavirus medical insurance. Also, for touch trace purposes, all arriving passengers must install the Amman program.

PCR checks for all incoming travelers, including residents and visitors, are required at the airport. For children, over five years old are included. The exam costs 40 Dinars from Jordan (Dh200) and is charged electronically before hitting the Kingdom. Upon payment of the bill, the passengers may obtain an electronic code received from check-in officials running the operating Jordan airlines.

Who can travel to Jordan?

Visa protocols continue as before, but countries have been since split into three groups for each target concerning the severity of the coronavirus outbreak.

The ranking is intended as a traffic lighting device. Travelers from “green” countries will visit Jordan without a quarantine requirement. No more than 72 hours before flight departure time will be needed for the negative PCR test outcome, and a second test will be anticipated at arrival in Amman.

Seven days of quarantine in governmentally licensed buildings, they were accompanied by an additional seven days of domiciled or hotel quarantine for travelers traveling to Jordan from countries designated as yellow – which include the UAE.

People traveling from locations marked as “red” would now be issued with a monitoring band to bear the same regulations as those coming from yellow countries. The list is revised every two weeks, and the new details are accessible here. The list of countries is also affordable. Travelers from non-Category countries are unable to enter Jordan.

Which airlines are flying to Jordan?

According to the Queen Alia International Airport website, flights from Algeria, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey were among the first foreign airlines to arrive in Amman.

Emirates says regular flights to Dubai have been restored, but it is the first bookable flight from Dubai to Amman. Flights to Amman will be fixed by Etihad, with flight services.

Michel Nabih Antoine Nazzal, Board Member for Royal Jordan, confirmed that flights to numerous destinations, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi, have been restored by Jordan’s national airline.
