Independence Day events to take place across Jordan on May 25 as COVID-19 restrictions remain in place; transportation and commercial disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 5/24/2020, 7:00 PM until 5/27/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Amman). COUNTRY/REGION Jordan


Jordan will hold Independence Day events across the country on Monday, May 25. Multiple military parades are planned in the capital Amman, and in Irbid and Aqaba provinces between 17:00-18:30 (local time), to commemorate the 74th anniversary of the kingdom's independence. Additional public observances are expected nationwide; however, due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, normal gatherings and celebrations must not contradict the steps and procedures in place to contain the pandemic. As such, social-distancing rules, such as keeping 1.5 m (5 ft) apart and the nationwide overnight curfew between 19:00-08:00 (local time), must be upheld.

A heightened security presence and disruptions to transportation and commerce are to be anticipated nationwide during the celebrations.  


Individuals in Jordan are advised to avoid all demonstrations and large gatherings and expect crowded conditions, longer travel times, and increased security measures during the celebrations.
