The Director of the coronavirus Crisis Cell, Brig. Gen. Mazen Farrayah, has announced today that the third phase of repatriating Jordanian students and those stranded abroad will begin on May 28. 

During a press conference at the Prime Ministry building, Farrayah said that the government will operate a flight next Saturday for the return of Jordanians from Doha.

He indicated that a total of 6,855 people have returned to the Kingdom so far.

"The online platform launched by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates, through which expatriates can submit applications to return to the Kingdom, will be activated within two days," he stated.

The first batch of returnees will end the compulsory quarantine in the Dead Sea area starting from May 22, and arrangements will be made for their return to their homes with private vehicles, according to the procedures previously taken.
