Shipping to Jordan
When shipping to Jordan, you have several options of how you want to ship such as air mail, ocean cargo freight liners, road cargo trucks and even courier services. In each category there are plenty of different companies that are all clambering for your business.
Security concerns when shipping to Jordan
Although Jordan is considered a safer nation within the Middle East, there is still unrest brewing within its borders, even if not as severe as outside them. When you ship to Jordan you will want to keep this in mind as it may inadvertently effect your parcel getting to its proper destination. This could happen for a number of reasons including a disruption in services due to infrastructure damage or the loss of delivery people, thievery from the delivery vehicles, or even thievery from within the Customs department (although the last point is not all that common).
Tracking your shipping to Jordan
Because of the aforementioned security concerns when shipping to Jordan, it would be best to get a tracking number for your package as well as consider getting insurance pulled out on it just to be safe. Both options are nominal fees and your shipping company can help you find the right option for your particular shipping needs.
Shipping limitations to Jordan
The list of prohibited and restricted items for shipping to Jordan does change from time to time so it is wise to check for the most up to date list before shipping there. As a rule of thumb, you are not allowed to send and materials pertaining to venereal disease or the treatment of such a disease, any perishable infectious or non infectious biological substance and any arms of any kind. You can, however, ship bees and silk worms into the country if you get a special certificate that they are free of disease.
