Thursday, the National Center for Security and Crisis Management (NCSCM) announced a set of decisions in light of the developments in the epidemiological situation in the Kingdom.
The NCSCM said in a statement, that starting from Sunday, Dec. 12, those arriving to the Kingdom must conduct a PCR test within 72 hours of arrival, register on the GATEWAY2JORDAN platform and obtain a QRcode that authorizes them to board the plane. After following all the mentioned procedures, another PCR test is required to be conducted upon arrival at Jordan’s airports.
Those procedures are required to be implemented at border crossings as well.
Notably, children under the age of five are exempted from these measures.
Additionally, the center decided to cancel the previous decision which exempted those who hold a COVID-19 vaccination certificate from conducting a PCR test upon their arrival in the Kingdom.
The center also noted that the new procedures include the cancellation of the previous decision which had excluded Jordanians who are vaccinated from conducting a PCR test in the country of departure (if they stay there for less than 10 days) before arriving into the Kingdom.
Earlier, Adviser to the Prime Minister for Health Affairs, responsible for the coronavirus file, Adel Belbis, announced that all arrivals through land, sea and air crossings and from any country should conduct a PCR test upon their arrival in the Kingdom.
He explained that those arriving in the Kingdom are not obligated to stay at the airport and wait until the result of the PCR test appears.
