MedicalTourism Jordan

Visa requirements

Jordan boasts almost year-round sunshine with temperate, comfortable weather. Spring and autumn are fresh and crisp with rain being more common in the spring. This is a wonderful time to visit as the wildflowers in their myriad of colors - are in full bloom. The long summer days are sunny with cool evenings-perfect for roof top sunsets and outdoor activities.

Wintertime can be cold in the desert, but is pleasantly moderate in most of the country. This is an especially good time for a trip to Aqaba, a coastal city in the South of Jordan.

However, the weather can be quite varied depending on the time of year and your location within the country. An example of this diversity in climate can be witnessed during the winter in Amman where - due to differences in elevation (from 750 – 1300 m) – one can experience snow on the western side of the city while rain falls in the center of town.

In general, Amman is sunny and cloudless from May to October, with average temperatures around 23’C (73’F). July and August are hot and dry – sometimes extremely so, but summer days are usually tempered by cool breezes and extremely low humidity. April, May and September and October are especially nice times to visit as temperatures are mild and even somewhat cool in the evenings (it can also rain occasionally so come prepared with an umbrella). Winter usually runs from December to the end of March; during this time temperatures can get quite cool if not downright cold. Aqaba and the Jordan Valley are ideal winter resorts, with temperatures averaging 16-22’C (61-72’F) between November and April.

Medical tourists should take the following precautions, particularly during the summer months:

Drink Lots of Water

If you visit Jordan in summer then you will need to drink more water than you are used to at home – even if you don´t feel thirsty. The low humidity will temper the heat, however, you will still get dehydrated rapidly if you don´t drink liquids frequently. Dehydration is a serious concern for anyone, but it is especially dangerous for someone who has had a recent surgery as it will hinder the healing process.

Use Saline nasal Spray

Summers are not only hot, but they are extremely dry. If you are traveling between June and September make sure to pack some saline nasal spray to keep your airways moist. Not only will you feel more comfortable, but you will protect your nasal passages from potential nose bleeds.

Sunscreen

Marveling at an ancient amphitheater or Roman aqueduct is apt to make you forget about the time or the sun’s strong rays. Protect yourself from the sun by using sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. This is particularly important for patients who have undergone plastic surgery as the sun can hinder healing and promote unattractive scarring.

To keep yourself protected:

  • Avoid exposure between 10 am and 4 pm
  • Use a sunscreen with a SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of 30 or greater
  • (higher if you are fair skinned)
  • Use a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB radiation
  • Use sunglasses that offer UVA protection
  • Wear a hat

Moisturizing Cream

Whether hot or cold, Jordan’s dry windy conditions can dehydrate your skin. Put on a good moisturizing cream in the morning and before you go to bed to keep your skin nicely hydrated.
