Published on : Tuesday, January 21, 2020

In 2019, more than 247,000 Jordan Pass tickets were sold, marking a noteworthy 98% increase compared to 2018, according to the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities.

 

The unified tourism ticket, Jordan Pass, grants tourists prepaid entry to more than 40 attractions in Jordan, including UNESCO World Heritage sites, museums, and castles among others.

 

Offered in three categories — the Jordan Wanderer at JD70 per ticket, the Jordan Explorer at JD75 and the Jordan Expert at JD80. The pass provides itineraries based on tourist preferences.

 

All three packages exempt pass-holding tourists from tourist entry visa fees, provided they buy the pass before arriving to Jordan and stay in the Kingdom for a minimum of three nights.

 

The ministry stated that the number of pass sales amounted to more than JD18 million during 2019, with 247,400 tickets sold, compared to JD9.1 million in 2018, with 122,700 tickets sold.

 

The ministry described the Jordan Pass as “an outstanding way to explore the Kingdom”, and added that it is “the ultimate sightseeing package that has been especially tailor-made for visitors to the beautiful Kingdom of Jordan”.

 

The unified ticket system was introduced in the last quarter of 2015 for improving tourism activity, motivating tourists and visitors to visit significant archaeological sites, extending their stay and increasing sector income.

 

The ministry stated that the Kingdom is the first country in the Arab world to make the unified ticket system a reality.
