Health tourism desk launched at Jordan’s main airport

The statement says that the medical travel office will serve as a one-stop-shop, streamlining the entry and treatment journey of foreign patients and their escorts.

Speaking at the opening of the office, Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Majd Shweikeh said that the office is part of a broader government drive to propel further growth and development of the medical and recreation tourism sectors in Jordan, as a key stream of national revenue.

The office, established in cooperation with the Ministry of Interior and the Jordan Tourism Board (JTB), will also provide insights and data about medical tourism services and will develop closer alignment with other key stakeholders, including the Private Hospitals Association, to ensure the delivery of quality medical services.

In addition to ensuring that patients reach their treatment destinations inside the Kingdom and fast-tracking critical cases, the office will collect feedback and follow up on any grievances.
