General information

Local currency


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

The same time zone as Bulgaria – GMT+2.
Crime and security

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

Legislation

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.

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 of alcohol.

Healthcare

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

Travel papers and visas

Passport – validity should be at least 6 months when travelling to Jordan

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 the King Hussein Bridge (Allenby Bridge) and the ferryboat from Egypt). Visa fees are 40 JDs ($56) for single entry. 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 & Residence Department for another two months.

Arrivals at Aqaba, either through the port, the airport or land except for South Wadi Araba crossing boarder 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 must have a valid medical insurance covering the period of stay in Jordan.

A foreigner can work in Jordan only if he/she holds a work visa.

It is prohibited for foreigners who have entered the country with tourist visas to be hired at work.

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 if need be.

Bulgarian citizens visiting the country should know that taking photos of administrative buildings, embassies, hotels and other places with armed guards and enhanced security measures is forbidden.

Bulgarian citizens visiting the country during the Ramadan should know that until sunset they are advised to abstain from eating, drinking water or other beverages and smoking in public places (excepting the hotels where they are staying).

There are no restrictions in respect of clothing; still, it is recommendable that it is decent since the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan respects the Muslim traditions, customs and morality.

 

Competitive service

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.

Issuance of Bulgarian identity documents

Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Amman accepts applications for new passports, identity cards and driving licences.

Civil status

At the Consular Section in the Embassy in Amman registration of birth, marriage or death of Bulgarian citizens can be processed. To that end the Bulgarian citizen must 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 / issued 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.
