Health Alert- Interest for Flights to the United States (April 26, 2020)
Event: Potential Flights to the United States
The U.S. Embassy is seeking interest from U.S. citizens who would like to depart Jordan on flights to the United States, potentially in the first two weeks of May. There is no confirmed flight or specific destination city at this time.
If you are a U.S. citizen and you wish to return to the U.S. on a flight coordinated by the Embassy, please click here to complete our travel request form. The deadline for submission of information is 4:00 PM on April 27, 2020.
- If commercial flight options are offered to the U.S., the cost could be significant. Once we have more data we will provide it. Travelers will be responsible for purchasing tickets at their own expense.
- Travelers will be responsible for booking onward travel from the arrival location in the United States to their final destination in the U.S., either when purchasing their departure ticket or after arrival in the United States. This additional travel will be at your own expense.
- Depending on your personal/financial situation and support network, sheltering in place in Jordan may be an option. However, you should be prepared to do so for an indefinite amount of time.
- The Embassy will try to arrange transportation to Queen Alia International Airport if the curfew is still in place on the day of a flight. If personal vehicle traffic (including taxis, Uber and Careem) is permitted on the day of the flight, travelers may be responsible for their own transportation to the airport.
This form is not a means to reserve or purchase a ticket at this time. You do not need to contact us separately to inform us of the completed travel request form.
Once a repatriation flight(s) from Jordan to the United States is confirmed, we will contact you on a first come, first served basis based on your completed travel request form with instructions on how to make a flight reservation and provide payment. Seats may fill quickly.
The U.S. Embassy in Amman continues to look at all options to support U.S. citizens in Jordan, but there is no guarantee that the Department of State will be able to continue to provide repatriation assistance, and transportation options to the United States may be unavailable in the future. As new information becomes available, we will share it with U.S. citizens on our website.
