Safety in Jordan - is it safe to travel there now?

edited May 2013 in - North Africa
Jordan is high on my list of must-travel-to countries. Is it still safe to travel there or is there a spillage of violence from over the border with Syria. Can anyone advise on safety in Jordan?


  • Yes perfectly safe.  At present there is no violence spilling over the border from Syria.  The borders are patrolled with high security and there are no sights that you would visit within Jordan that would take you the Jordan/Syria borders.
    The best place to go for advice is the Foreign Office however they do tend to err on the side of caution.  Jordan is very much open for tourism as usual and now is the time to go whilst others might decide to stay away because of the situation in neighbouring Syria. 


    I organise tours to Jordan - find out more at
