Security and health

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Smartraveller site provides advice for business travellers and tourists going to Jordan. This is regularly updated, and should be checked before planning travel.

It is strongly recommended that Australian travellers take out comprehensive travel insurance that will cover any overseas medical costs, before their departure. They should confirm that their insurance covers them for the whole time they will be away and check what circumstances and activities are / are not included in their policy.

It is also recommended that Australian travellers consult Smartraveller to provide greater protection in case of an emergency.


Vaccinations are not required unless you are travelling from an infected location.

Bottled water is recommended and all fruit and vegetables should be washed thoroughly.

There is an abundance of doctors and medical facilities are good. Jordanian Health Information provides contact details and information on doctors and hospitals in Jordan.
