LATEST TRAVEL UPDATES AND ADVICE FOR JORDAN

Updated: 28th January 2020

Travel Advice for Jordan

As a tour operator registered in the United Kingdom we follow the travel advice as set out by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) who currently advises against all but essential travel to within 3km of the Syrian border. None of our Jordan tours come close to the Syrian border and focus on the perfectly safe tourist destinations of Amman and destinations further south. A number of our tours visit Umm Qais which is 30km distance from the border and unaffected by the troubles in Syria. All tours are running as normal.

For more information please visit the FCO website.

You may also wish to consult Smart Traveller when planning your trip for insurance cover purposes.

Travelling to Jerash & Umm Qais

Some of our group tours visit the ancient ruins of Jerash and Umm Qais located in the northern region of Jordan. Umm Qais is the northern-most site that our tours visit in Jordan and is located approximately 12km from present day Syrian territory. The area that Jerash and Umm Qais both fall in remains unaffected by the troubles in Syria and are safe destinations to visit.

Travelling to Amman

A lot of our Jordan group tours start in the capital city of Amman. The city is peaceful and a safe destination for all travellers.

Travelling to Petra

As Jordan's most popular tourist destination, the lost city of Petra remains a perfectly safe place to visit. Located 225km south of the Syrian border, Petra and the surrounding area, including Wadi Rum which lies further south, do not suffer from any unrest.
