According to the Jordan News Agency, Petra, Bustanji indicated that the decline in vehicle clearance this year occurred due to the decreased availability of new cars and global shipping delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian-Ukrainian war.

The decline in clearances on hybrid cars was due to the implementation of a new 55 percent tax on the vehicles, said Bustanji. He also urged the government to review the decisions that affected the Jordanian Free Zones in general and the automobile sector especially.

A total of 8,931 vehicles were exported in the first three months of the year, compared to 9,646 vehicles during the same period in 2021.
