He told al-Mamlaka TV that despite the increase, the number did not yet match that recorded prior to the breakout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hammouri said that Jordan was specifically distinguished in certain surgeries, namely heart and organ transplantations.

He stressed that the International Healthcare Travel Forum 2022 focused on the importance of the role of head of diplomatic missions abroad in marketing Jordan as a destination for medical tourism.

Hammouri called for stimulating the medical sector in Jordan by reducing the income and sales tax, and facilitating entry procedures into Jordan.

He pointed out that reviewing the taxes imposed on the sector is still “pending.”
