We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Jordan. The British Embassy in Amman provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Jordan.

We work on political, aid, commercial, security and economic interests between the UK and Jordan. We work to help British companies invest in Jordan and provide consular services to British nationals.

You can access UK government services while in Jordan.
