The current laws pertaining to e-cigarette legality is quite confusing for Jordan, but it appears as though the country has banned the sale, advertising, manufacturing, importation and use of e-cigarettes since 2009, including nicotine-free options.
Having said that, there are reports online claiming that these laws may in fact only apply to large quantities likely to be offered for resale in the country, and many people have traveled into Jordan with personal e-cigarette products without an issue.
Until further clarification is received from the embassy, we advise that you do not bring any e-cigarette products into Jordan. If you choose to do so, we advise that you at least abide by all current smoking laws until further clarification is received from the embassy. (Available in the tab below)

All Laws & Regulations
Jordan became a Party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control on February 27, 2005.
Smoke Free Places: Smoking is prohibited in hospitals, health centers, schools, cinemas, theaters, public libraries, museums, governmental and non-governmental public premises, means of transportation, arrivals and departures halls at airports, enclosed stadiums, lecture-halls and any other place deemed by the Minister as public. The law fails to list all indoor public places and workplaces, so smoking is restricted or completely unrestricted in some places. Further, the law authorizes the Minister of Health to allow designated smoking areas in public places. The Ministry of Health has allowed a phase-in of the smoking ban in restaurants. The current policy is that 50 percent of seats must be reserved for non-smokers. The Ministry has not yet allowed smoking rooms in other places.
