Brief summary:
Even though the political situation in Jordan is relatively stable, due to the spillover from the ongoing conflict in neighbouring countries and in the surrounding region, continued pressures of large refugee populations and economic reform programmes have created an atmosphere in which protests often occur. In light of this, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade Promotion advises all Maltese citizens to exercise caution when travelling to Jordan. Travellers must also avoid political gatherings, which can arise at short notice and can result in violent incidents, often in downtown Amman and the centres of other towns and cities after Friday midday prayers. From time to time, incidents have also occurred on several university campuses.
