Jordan is in general a safe country. (It really is, read more about it here).
However, like everywhere in the world, there are some things you might want to consider:
Valuables, Safety, & Travel Insurance:
Exercise the same safety precautions throughout your travels as you would at home. Be especially careful with your passport. It is a great idea to carry a photocopy of the informational pages of your passport (the pages containing your photograph and passport details, as well as any amendment pages and visas) and to leave a copy at home. Follow the security measures included with your travellers’ checks, and also leave an additional record of their numbers at home.
We recommend that all travellers purchase adequate trip cancellation/ interruption, medical, and baggage insurance and that they carry the details of their coverage with on tour.
Tap water is generally safe to drink. If you are sensitive however, it is recommended to drink bottled water. In any case it is all right to shower and brush your teeth using tap water.
Medical cares & Health info
Travelers with physical disabilities and those who require frequent or ongoing medical attention should advise us of their health situation at the time of booking.
You should carry along an adequate supply of any prescribed medications you may require while traveling. Prescription medicines should always be carried in your hand luggage (not in checked baggage) in their original, labeled containers only.
Medical services are excellent in Jordan and most doctors are bilingual in Arabic and English. Larger hotels have a doctor on call and embassies can also suggest doctors and hospitals. If you need to go in hospital, you can find a list with contact details here.
In case of emergency, dial 911.
