In September 2021, Jordan first announced its citizenship by investment program for foreigners, offering passports to those who invest at least $1 million in the country over a three-year period. Keep in mind though that Jordan does not allow dual citizenship.

According to the SovSpot Passport Ranking Index, the Jordanian passport is presently ranked 93rd. It is regarded as being on the bottom end of the world's Passport Rankings. Only 51 countries offer visa-free travel, visa on arrival, or ETA to Jordanian passport holders, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Georgia, and Dominica. A Jordanian passport holder is required to obtain a visa for 178 places before going. The passport raking is low on the overall global mobility score because of this. Jordanians must apply for a visa in advance for major locations such as the United States and the European Union. Applicants must show documentation such as evidence of funds and a return airline ticket when applying for a visa.
The number of countries Jordan passport holders can enter without a visa (i.e. visa-free countries) is added to the number of countries Jordan passport holders can enter by obtaining a visa on arrival (i.e. visa-on-arrival countries) or an electronic travel authorization (i.e. visa-on-arrival countries) (eTA). There are now 20 visa-free countries for Jordan passport holders, 29 visa-on-arrival countries for Jordan passport holders, and 2 eTA destinations. In total, Jordan passport holders can visit 51 countries without a visa, via visa on arrival, or using an eTA. As a result, Jordan's passport is currently ranked 93rd in the world. Aside from the Jordan visa-free and visa-on-arrival countries, there are 178 other countries where Jordan passport holders require either a physical visa or an eVisa (i.e. visa required countries).
