Wednesday, according to the UK government website, the Jordanian government has extended the travel ban to the UK until Jan. 18, 2021. A further review of the measures is expected, and there is a high possibility of further extension due to the high rates of COVID-19 infections.

Dec. 21, 2020, Jordan suspended all direct air passenger flights between the UK and Jordan from 21 December 2020. 

The Jordanian government reopened Queen Alia International Airport Sep. 10, 2020 to a limited number of commercial flights.

Notably, Wednesday, the Jordanian government announced during a press conference, that the travel sector will begin to slowly reopen. The Minister of State for Media Affairs, Ali Al-Ayed said that PCR tests are only required when traveling, with all works stopping on the VisitJordan platform.

Those who travel to Jordan will no longer need to home-quarantine. All that is needed is a negative PCR test within 72 hours of their arrival, said Al-Ayed.

No news of the UK travel ban was mentioned during the government press conference.
