Citizenship by Investment Overview

The Jordan Citizenship by Investment Program allows foreign nationals to make an investment into the country and apply for an alternative citizenship. Jordan is a relatively calm country in a tumultuous region, and access to Jordanian citizenship is therefore appealing to applicants from nearby countries faced with socio-political challenges.

The Jordan Citizenship by Investment Program

Located in the Northern Arabian Peninsula, Jordan is almost completely landlocked, and prospective investors are in a key position to benefit from the kingdom’s close proximity to Saudi Arabia in the south and Israel to the west — allowing for an expanded business and investment landscape.

For those who desire to become citizens in this diverse and peaceful Arab country, the Jordan Citizenship by Investment Program is the most efficient way to acquire such status. The Jordanian government welcomes wealthy foreign individuals who wish to make a significant, qualified investment into the country that would boost the economy through foreign direct investment. Under this program, individuals and their immediate family members can become citizens of Jordan within three months.

Benefits of the Jordan Citizenship by Investment Program

  • Visa-free or visa-on-arrival access to 50 destinations
  • Citizenship applicable to the whole family including the main applicant’s spouse, children (unmarried, widowed, or divorced daughters and sons under 18), and dependent parents
  • Citizenship of a calm and stable country in the Middle East
  • No minimum residence period required to retain citizenship
  • Citizenship of a country that plays an active role in the UN and is a member of the World Trade Organization

Requirements of Jordanian citizenship by investment

The Jordan Citizenship by Investment Program requires that a foreign individual invests into either a bank deposit, treasury bonds, securities, small and medium enterprises, or a local job-creating project.

Applicants are required to fulfill one of the following investment options in the country:

  1. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs)
    Invest USD 750,000 in SMEs for a minimum period of three years
  2. Bank deposit
    Place a zero-interest deposit of USD 1 million at the Central Bank of Jordan (CBJ) for a minimum period of three years
  3. Treasury bonds
    Purchase treasury bonds valued at USD 1 million at an interest rate to be decided upon by the CBJ, held for a minimum period of six years
  4. Securities
    Buy securities valued at USD 1 million from an active investment portfolio in Jordan, held for three years
  5. Local job-creating project
    Invest USD 1.5 million in any location in Jordan (USD 1 million for a project that is registered outside Amman), provided the project creates at least 20 employment opportunities and is operational for a minimum of three years

Documentary evidence of the investment must be provided as part of the application process.

Procedures and time frame of the Jordan Citizenship by Investment Program

Applications for Jordanian citizenship must include completed application forms and should be accompanied by the appropriate fees and supporting documents. The eligibility criteria are applied to a maximum of 500 cases annually, following security clearance and confirmation of the applicant's financial adequacy.

After initial due diligence checks have been conducted, the applicant may choose their preferred investment route: SMEs, a bank deposit, treasury bonds, securities, or a local job-creating project.

Once the application for Jordanian citizenship has been submitted to the relevant government committee and further due diligence checks have been successfully completed, the application may be approved if eligibility is proven. Following the applicant’s fulfilment of the chosen investment, they (and their included family members) receive a Jordanian passport.

Citizenship applies to the main investor, spouse, children (unmarried, widowed, or divorced daughters and sons under 18), and dependent parents.

There is no minimum residence requirement to maintain citizenship.
