The director of the Jordanian Jaber Border Crossing between Jordan and Syria, Moayad al-Zou’bi announced on Wednesday the implementation of the decision to reopen and re-operate the Jaber-Nasib border crossing at full capacity.
In a radio statement, Zou’bi said that the movement of cargo and travelers at the Jaber-Nasib border crossing point started this morning accompanied by a set of procedures that facilitate the transport process.
“Transit trucks are allowed to enter Jordan and head towards Saudi Arabia and to leave Jordan towards Syria,” he said.
He added that travelers from Jordan can cross the border to Syria using public transport vehicles and buses without prior approval from the Ministry of Interior.
“100 cargo vehicles can cross the borders daily, while the number of passenger buses is not specified,” according to Zou’bi.
He pointed out that both arriving and departing passengers and drivers are required to submit a PCR test certificate valid for a period of 72 hours.
Last Monday, the Jordanian Ministry of Interior decided to reopen the Jaber-Nasib border crossing center as of Wednesday morning.
