Jordan is synonymous with ancient history and religion, making this country the perfect destination for history and culture buffs. For other expats, the food which is a mixture of European, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines is a big draw. Alcohol is served to non-Muslims in most restaurants and bars. You can enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle here too, especially if you're into diving and snorkelling. The Red Sea and its stunning coral gardens are a sight to behold.
Before you ship your household goods to Jordan, make sure to choose the right shipping container. As a gauge, 20-foot container can hold the contents of a 3-bedroom house. If you decide to take your car with you, you should opt for a 40-foot container. This container size can also accommodate the contents of a 4- or 5-bedroom house.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
