Jordan and its Tourism: Impact of Covid 19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on Jordan’s tourism industry, leading to a significant decline in revenue and employment. According to a study, the pandemic caused a 56.27% reduction in tourism industry revenue, equivalent to JD 1069.5. The closure of economic sectors and travel restrictions resulted in a massive decline in both tourism income and spending. The tourism sector, which accounted for around 18% of Jordan’s GDP and total employment in 2019, was particularly hard hit by the pandemic. The closure of the airport, travel restrictions, and the compulsory shutdown of tourist sites and related businesses led to a sharp decline in tourist arrivals and revenue. The World Bank’s Economic Update for Jordan in April 2021 highlighted the devastating effect of COVID-19 on the country’s travel and tourism sector, with the economy contracting by 1.5% during the first nine months of 2020. The study also emphasized that the pandemic led to a substantial widening of the twin deficits, increased debt levels, and rising unemployment. The impacts of COVID-19 on the tourism industry in Jordan have been far-reaching, with significant implications for the country’s economy and employment.

The pandemic’s impact on the tourism industry in Jordan has been severe, with around half of all tourist enterprises being forced to lay off employees since March 2020. The closure of spaces where people gather and other government regulations to combat the spread of COVID-19 led to a significant reduction in demand for travel and tourism services. The study also highlighted that the tourism sector was one of the hardest hit by the pandemic, with nearly 100 travel agencies and 800 local restaurants and cafes being affected. The closure of economic sectors and travel restrictions resulted in a massive decline in both tourism income and spending. The pandemic’s impact on the tourism industry in Jordan has been far-reaching, with significant implications for the country’s economy and employment.
