I'm aware that EU citizens except Croatians can enter Jordan through Aqaba airport on an ID card instead of a passport. This is stated in Timatic, the database used by airlines https://www.timaticweb.com/cgi-bin/tim_website_client.cgi?SpecData=1&VISA=&page=visa&NA=SE&AR=00&PASSTYPES=PASS&DE=JO&selDest=Jordan&selTrans=Use+ctrl-key+to+select+or+deselect+transit+point%28s%29+above&user=OLYMPIC&subuser=OLYMPICB2C
It says, however, that one condition is that you fly specifically from Brussels, which sounds very strange seeing as there are also flights from other European cities, such as Helsinki, Copenhagen and Bergamo.
So if any local could contact the authorities in Aqaba and ask the following two questions, it would be much appreciated (I have tried, but they don't respond to e-mails, and no Jordanian embassy even knows of this provision):
1. Do you actually have to fly from Brussels to enter with an ID? What about other European cities?
