Visitors coming through the land border with Saudi Arabia who have received the two vaccine doses, or have waited 14 days since receiving the first dose and tested for the virus within 72 hours, no longer need to register on the ministry’s online platform or take a PCR test at the border.

Those wishing to enter the Kingdom without having received the vaccine must register on the ministry platform and abide by the standard protocol in place.

Faraya noted that the decision was made to facilitate matters for returning Jordanians, and Saudis coming across the border, especially ahead of eid.
