Ministry spokesman Tareq Al-Majali said that the e-visa consists of a digital document obtained through the Interior Ministry’s mobile application. Applicants can enter their personal information for the purpose of receiving visas, and, following confirmation, will obtain a barcode that will allow their passports to be stamped directly upon arrival to the Kingdom.

This represents the first time that five-year electronic visas will be granted by the Kingdom, Minister of Interior Mazen Al-Faraya said last week during a meeting with the Parliamentary Finance Committee.

He noted that the ministry has “greatly facilitated” entry to Jordan, leading to a significant increase in the number of arrivals, especially as Syrian refugees residing in Europe have are now permitted to enter the Kingdom for one-month visits.
