Jordan international patient flow

 

The Jordan Tourism Board lists over 60 countries with restricted visa access to the country.

The amended regulations governing the issuance of medical treatment visas came into force in mid-May, in accordance with the provisions of Article 9 of the Residency and Foreigners Affairs Law No. 3 of 1997 and its amendments.  The amendments also apply to those of restricted nationalities who seek treatment in Jordan.

Under the decision, approved by the Cabinet, patients of restricted nationalities can apply for visas through the websites of the Interior Ministry, diplomatic missions, airlines, accredited transport operators or licensed travel and tourism companies.

In the article Hammouri said that these amendments have “revitalised” the medical and health sectors, increasing the Kingdom’s medical tourism revenues. 

He also urged the concerned authorities to promote all kinds of tourism, especially medical tourism, such as the Jordan Tourism Board’s specialised unit designated to promote and develop the medical tourism sector.
