Countries that accept Jordanian dinar

The Jordanian dinar (JOD) is the official currency of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, more simply known as Jordan.

The modern dinar comes from the gold dinar, the main coin of the medieval Islamic empires. A few Balkan and Middle Eastern countries also use the dinar as their currency unit, but you won’t be able to use the Jordanian dinar outside Jordan.

Why visit Jordan?

If you are planning a trip to Jordan you can explore the vast landscape of the Wadi Rum desert or get lost in UNESCO World Heritage sites like Petra and Quseir Amra. If you’re a foodie with a taste for the Middle East, the streets of Amman are the place to be.

Whatever you plan to do in Jordan, make sure you bring enough Jordanian dinar for your trip. Jordan isn’t a budget-friendly destination, and little things like food and drink can quickly add up.

To help you plan, you can use our currency converter to find out how much Jordanian dinar your money will buy.

Are there any local businesses that only accept Jordanian dinars, or can I use other currencies as well?

What is the latest government travel advice for Jordan?

While Jordan has less British tourists than neighbouring Turkiye and the UAE, most visits are safe and trouble-free.

Jordan is an Islamic country with religious customs. During Ramadan, many Jordanians will be fasting from morning until sunset. Out of respect, you should avoid eating or drinking in public spaces during these daylight hours.

Jordan isn’t cheap and healthcare isn’t free. Make sure you have travel insurance before you go so you aren’t out of pocket if the unexpected happens.
