Yesterday (Thursday) Jordan reopened its border crossings with Saudi Arabia, Israel and the occupied West Bank, nearly seven months after it was closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The official “Kingdom” TV stated, “Three land border crossings have resumed their work to receive travelers Thursday, after months-long closure.” He added that these crossings “were limited to the al-Mudawara border center (with Saudi Arabia), the King Hussein Bridge and Sheikh Hussein Bridge (with the Palestinian territories and Israel), according to procedures and controls for the number of travelers for each crossing.”
According to Agence France-Presse, it is scheduled to receive each of the border post Mudawara (south of the Kingdom), and Sheikh Hussein Bridge (northwest) one hundred passengers per day, while the King Hussein Bridge (west) will receive 150 passengers.
Those coming to the Kingdom from these crossings must register on a dedicated electronic platform called “Visit Jordan” and do a corona examination (BCR) five days before their arrival to the Kingdom in order to obtain the approval of “QR-Code” to enter the Kingdom.
The traveler will undergo a new examination upon arrival in the Kingdom, a home quarantine for a week if he is healthy, and a home quarantine for 10 days if he is infected.
Jordan had closed its land borders and airports in mid-March to contain the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic, and only trucks carrying goods and goods were allowed to cross.
The kingdom reopened the airport in September.
