Jordan lies in the Middle East. The country has borders with several countries, including Israel, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. The climate in Jordan is dominated by the country’s desert landscape. Besides this arid desert climate, Jordan has a warm Mediterranean climate in the highlands above the Jordan Valley and the mountains of the Dead Sea. The best times to travel to Jordan are spring and autumn. Then you avoid the summer heat and the cold winters. Whatever you plan to do whilst on holiday in Jordan, always take into account the risk of diseases and protect yourself against the fierce sunlight. Malaria does not occur in Jordan.
Vaccination against yellow fever is required if coming from or if you have been in transit for more than 12 hours in a country with a high risk area.
