Jordan is one of the destinations 2019 suggested by Lonely Planet: a suggestion that hit the spot. Actually, in the first trimester of the year, the number of foreign tourists had a 33,3% growth than the corresponding period in 2018. According to the data provided by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities (MOTA), also the hotel stays are growing, specifically of the 36%.

The most of the overnight stays in 2018 is due to European travellers, that contributed to the growth of 51,1% than 2017. Still referring to last year, the 24,5% of the overnight stays is due to the tourists from Asia-Pacific, the 22,9% is due to the tourists from America and the 21,6% to the African ones.

Through the Western Countries, the first one for the tourist number that reached Jordan in the first trimester in 2019 is Italy. This information is reported by the Jordan Tourism Board: its website is the institutional source to refer to, in order to learn more about Jordan and to remain focused on the news and the events in program.

«On January, February and March there were triple-digit growths, which put Italy on the first place through the Western Countries for the arrivals. After January (+124%) and February (+122,4%), on March there was an increase of arrivals from Italy of 146% than the same month last year, which boasted a growth of +88% than 2017», as askanews said.

You can find more detailed information about the touristic numbers registered in Jordan in 2018 on the section Statistics of the MOTA official website. Unfortunately, not all the information are available, since it seems that some links don’t work, specifically the ones under the section Classification of visitors.

You may find particularly interesting the information under the section Visitors to Touristic sites, where, for example, you can learn more about the number of visitors of the principal touristic attractions of Jordan according to the Nationality. Another section to consult is the one named Establishment Statistics Accommodation, useful to learn more about the tourists’ preferences regarding hotels and other accommodation solutions.

Before saying goodbye, we leave you two final notes. The first one is again from the Jordan Tourism Board, that points out some positive signals also from the MICE (Meeting, Incentives, Conferences, Exhibitions) and business tourism.

The second note is to remind you to be prepared to address the matter of security with your clients. «Jordan represents a stable element in a particular unstable region», as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs inform us in Italy. Moreover, Jordan «lives the repercussions of the conflicts and the tensions that cross the region and it’s not free from threats, included the risk of terrorist attacks. In every case, there is a widespread coverage of security forces».
