After the day indicated as the day students depart (typically following the final day of the program), students are responsible for all of their own transportation, housing, insurance, and other logistical arrangements. Students should note that after the departure day noted on the academic calendar, their program-provided insurance coverage will end and they must arrange for accommodations outside of AMIDEAST shared apartments, AMIDEAST host families, or the hotel in Dublin.

Update On Jordan Safety

 

August 2017

As you likely know, the US Department of State issued a Travel Warning for Jordan on December 23, 2016. These warnings periodically come up for review and on Thursday, July 20, 2017 the US Department of State re-issued the country’s Travel Warning.

The Travel Warning notes that visitors to Jordan should consider the ongoing risks of travel in the country and outlines three security incidents that took place in the country during 2016. The message does not implement a departure status for US citizens or communicate advice that differs from previous security messages that have been issued by the US Embassy in Amman. The locations in Jordan that the Department of State recommends travelers avoid are already classified as prohibited locations for all AMIDEAST and FIE students under our joint Travel Policies. AMIDEAST continues to work with the US government as well as private security companies to maximize the health, safety, and security of our participants. 

Following the issuance of the initial Travel Warning, AMIDEAST partnered with the Public Affairs Section of the US Embassy in Amman to provide an informative webinar on the state of operations for all US Department of State-sponsored exchange programs. The information we received does not indicate a change in the situation on the ground for American citizens, including AMIDEAST/FIE students. We encourage students, families, and institutions alike to watch this webinar presented in May by Tobias Bradford, who was Public Affairs Officer at the US Embassy in Jordan and learn more about the situation in Jordan.

It’s important for me to clarify that I lived in Amman for most of the past 5 years. After a review of available information and internal discussions, we confirm our plans to continue with our regular programming in Amman. We will continue to monitor carefully the situation in Jordan as always, and will update you if we feel there is a need to alter our operational status.

Please feel free to reach out to AMIDEAST Education Abroad staff with any questions.
