Jordan is starting to find its tourists again. It must be recognized that the country has entrusted its tourist representation to professionals (Mn’O). This is an additional reason for a strong increase in the number of tourists.

A first quarter up significantly

Tourism revenue in Jordan increased by 88.4% in the first quarter of 2023 compared to the same period of the previous year, reaching USD 1.671 billion due to a notable increase in the flow of visitors.

The country has recorded an unprecedented growth in the number of tourists visiting the country. Over 1.47 million people visited Jordan in the first quarter of 2023.

The number represents a 90.7% increase from the 774,111 tourists who visited the country during the same period last year, according to Jordanian news agency Petra.

A figure higher than that recorded in 2019

The record exceeds the number of visits in the first quarter of 2019, considered a “golden year” for tourism in Jordan, when it welcomed 1.146 million tourists, representing 966,483 overnight stays.

According to the data, tourism receipts increased by 49% compared to March 2022, totaling USD 614.7 million.

Additionally, the latest monthly report from the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities revealed an 80.9 percent increase in overnight tourists to 1.204 million in the quarter from 665,779 a year earlier.

Jordan has so much to offer

Jordan has a large number of renowned monuments and other attractions including the “Golden Triangle” encompassing Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba and the Dead Sea, the Roman Theater in Amman and Mount Nebo, the Castle of Ajloun, Jerash, the site of the baptism of Jesus Christ and Karak Castle.

Last month, the northern town of Umm Qais was honored in the United Nations World Tourism Organization’s Best Tourist Village awards in Al Ula, Saudi Arabia.

Secretary General of Jordan’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, Imad Hijazin, said at the event that joining the United Nations list would boost the kingdom’s status on the world tourism map.

This achievement is in line with the ministry’s vision and is aligned with the tourism development plan under Jordan’s National Tourism Strategy 2021-2025.

Imad Hijazin noted that local recognition would help empower local communities and increase employment opportunities.
