On 26 July 2017, the US Embassy in Jordan warned its citizens that due to reported unrest and the potential for criminal activities, the Embassy has placed several areas of southern Jordan off limits for personal and official travel for all US Embassy personnel until August 6, 2017. The areas include the city of al-Jafr, all areas south of the city of al-Jafr along Highway 5 in the direction of Ma’an, the Desert Highway (Highway 15) between Ma’an and Aqaba as well as the areas east of the Desert Highway. The off limits area includes all of Wadi Rum. The level of this advice has not changed. Exercise a high degree of caution in¬†Jordan.
