The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
The local security authorities have created a solid system to counter terrorist threats at the main tourist sites. Bulgarian citizens should be vigilant and not attract attention with behavior that does not correspond to the local traditional and religious customs.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises avoiding visiting border areas, as well as places where demonstrations are held and there is a large gathering of people. In the capital, the mosques "Al-Husseini" in Downtown and "Al-Kaluti" in Al-Rabiah district should be avoided.
The forces of security and public order are taking the necessary measures for the peaceful progress of the demonstrations, but increased vigilance should be exercised.

General information

Security level:

The crime rate in Jordan is relatively low. Safety and security is well maintained, specifically around the big hotels, in public areas and tourist sites. Jordanian government enforces strict measures against any attempt of extremism, for the protection of foreign citizens in the country. Nevertheless, every Bulgarian citizen visiting the country has to take all routine precautionary measures for the protection of their own safety, against theft, scam or assault.


The healthcare level is high, but very expensive. We advise to include contracts for health/travel insurance in advance.

Customs requirements:

Foreigners are allowed to bring into Jordan up to 10,000 Jordanian dinars or their value in another currency. Foreigners are allowed to bring into Jordan up to 20 packets of cigarettes and 1 bottle (up to 1 l.) of alcohol.
It is not allowed to import drones and binoculars in the country.

Practical advice:

The Bulgarian embassy recommends that Bulgarian tourists or visitors stay in touch with the embassy throughout their stay in the country and contact it in a timely manner in case of need.
Bulgarian citizens visiting the country should know that taking photos of administrative buildings, embassies, hotels, military facilities and other places with armed guards and enhanced security measures is strictly forbidden.
Bulgarian citizens visiting the country during the Ramadan should know that from dawn until sunset it is not allowed to eat, drink water or other beverages and smoke in public places (except for the hotels where they are staying or restaurants that function).
It is recommendable that the clothing is decent since the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan follows the Muslim traditions, customs and morality. Swimsuits can be worn in private beaches, but not in public ones. In more traditional places sleeveless tops and shorts should be avoided.

Local currency:

Jordanian dinar (JOD)
1 USD – 0,71 JOD (fixed)

Travel papers and visas

There is a Consular Agreement signed between Bulgaria and Jordan on visa free regime for diplomatic and service passport holders.
Bulgarian citizens with a valid passport may obtain a visa upon arrival at Amman’s Queen Alia International Airport or at any other border crossing (except for the ferry from Egypt).

The visa issued at a border crossing point entitles the traveler to a maximum of a 30-day stay and can be extended at the respective police department for 2 months and at Borders and Residence Department for another 2 months.
Arrivals at Aqaba, either through the port, the airport or land except for South Wadi Araba crossing border are granted a free visa to Jordan. There is no obligation associated with this visa, provided that they leave the country from the same border and within 1 month of arrival, and that they do not need to renew their visa.
Every tourist is advised to have a valid medical insurance covering the period of stay in Jordan.
A foreigner can work in Jordan only if they hold a work visa.
It is prohibited for foreigners who have entered the country with tourist visas to be hired at work.

Practical advice



Competitive service

Issuance of Bulgarian identity documents:
Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Amman accepts applications for new passports, identity cards and driving licences. The application form can be downloaded by https://www.mfa.bg/upload/70214/%D0%B7%D0%B0%D1%8F%D0%B2%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5%20%D0%B7%D0%B0%20%D0%B8%D0%B7%D0%B4%D0%B0%D0%B2%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%B5%20%D0%BD%D0%B0%20%D0%B1%D1%8A%D0%BB%D0%B3%D0%B0%D1%80%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%B8%20%D0%BB%D0%B8%D1%87%D0%BD%D0%B8%20%D0%B4%D0%BE%D0%BA%D1%83%D0%BC%D0%B5%D0%BD%D1%82%D0%B8.pdf.

In case of expired Bulgarian identity documents and for minor citizens, the original or a certified copy of the person's birth certificate must be presented.
In the case of using the DHL service for Jordan, the price of a shipment weighing up to 0.5 kg. from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Amman is BGN 92.41 or EUR 47.25.

Civil status:

At the Consular Section in the Embassy in Amman registration of birth, marriage or death of Bulgarian citizens can be processed. The Bulgarian citizen has to present a Jordanian act of the respective event, certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates of Jordan and translated into Bulgarian.
In case of death of a Bulgarian citizen, the Jordanian papers /death certificate, medical reports/ should be legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country, brought for certification to the consular section of the Bulgarian Embassy and translated into Bulgarian.
The Bulgarian diplomatic and consular missions abroad do not finance or carry out the activities for service and transportation of the deceased. In case of death, the relatives of the deceased Bulgarian citizen should establish contact with a funeral agency in the country of residence, where they will get acquainted with the service and transportation of the deceased abroad.

Legalisation and certification:

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is not a signatory party under the Hague Convention of 1961 and there is no agreement for bilateral legal assistance signed between Bulgaria and Jordan, therefore the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Amman certifies the seal of the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates. Then the documents can be used in Bulgaria with legalized translation. The same is valid for the documents issued in Bulgaria which have to bear the stamp of the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and to be certified by the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Amman and the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates to be used in Jordan.
