It’s a natural enough question to ask; Is Jordan a safe travel destination? And the answer is simple enough; Jordan is considered just as safe as any other major tourist destination in the world.
Not only are you able to openly visit, explore and enjoy the country but now is perhaps the best time to go. There are no restrictions on travel to any of the major tourism sites in Jordan allowing you to experience some of the world’s most unique destinations for historical, biblical and natural heritage.
Truly world class sights such as Petra, Wadi Rum, Jerash and the Dead Sea can be experienced in an unrushed way that allows you to truly take in the magic that is Jordan. And with UNESCO working tirelessly to protect and preserve these wonders of the world, and the people of Jordan shining with a pride unseen elsewhere, you can be sure of a marvelous welcome in a country where the phrase “welcome to Jordan” is never far from a local’s lips.
Naturally, given the problems in other parts of this vast region you should follow the same precautions you would take in any foreign country new to you; and of course you should consult your own governments travel advice such as the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office: www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/jordan
All of the sites of special interest to any leisure visitor remain open for business and ready to welcome you. You can see for yourself using the live web cams of EarthCam: http://visitjordan.com/earthcam/. It’s easy to picture yourself in the iconic Rose Red City of Petra, or floating in the unique Dead Sea. Follow the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia, or even Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones or Matt Damon in the new film ‘The Martian’ which was filming recently in Wadi Rum and is on general release in October.
The Jordan Tourism Board, in collaboration with other government agencies and the Royal Court, continues to make changes to make your journey as smooth as possible. Recent changes have removed the visa entry cost of 40 Jordanian Dinar (JOD) and a new ‘unified ticket’ will be introduced from 1 September onwards to give visitors access to all 35 touristic sites of the country including the fabulous Jordan Museum.
