Voltage Converters and Travel Adapters for Jordan

Traveling to Jordan? If you travel internationally frequently, you surely know that not all countries in the world have the same voltage or power sockets.

Countries like the US have a standard voltage of 110V, while Jordan has a standard voltage of 230V, similar to many European countries. What happens if you plug your low voltage device into a high voltage outlet? You may very well say goodbye to your device as it will eventually fry it.

In this article, I’ll explain to you what voltage adapter you need to get for Jordan, depending on your country.

Voltage Converters for Travelers from the USA and Japan

Countries such as the USA and Japan have a standard voltage of 110V and 100V respectively. Therefore, devices are only compatible with a 100-110V plug.

If you’re traveling from the US to Jordan, you’ll need a so called step-down converter. These devices convert high voltages (e.g. 230V) to safely charge devices with low voltage capacities (e.g. 110V).

By the way, these step-down converters are not only suitable for Jordan, but you can also use them in most European countries, as Jordan and Europe have the same voltage and power sockets.

Travel Adapters for Travelers from the UK and Ireland

UK and Ireland devices operate in 230V, which is the same voltage as you find in Jordan. However, Jordan mainly uses the plug types C, D, F, G, and J (2-pin sockets) while in the UK you’ll only find the so-called type G (3-pin sockets).

Travelers from the UK and Ireland will need a travel adapter when visiting Jordan. While the voltage in the UK and Jordan is the same, the power sockets are different in both countries. Without a travel adapter, you won’t be able to plug your 3-pin UK device into a 2-pin socket in Jordan.

Therefore, you’ll need a travel adapter to be able to plug your 3-pin device into a 2-pin socket. You can also use these travel adapters in most European countries, as Jordan and Europe have the same voltage and power sockets.

Travel Adapters Europe to Jordan

Traveling to Jordan from Europe (Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain…)? Then you won’t need any adapter or converter for Jordan. Jordan as well as most European countries have a standard voltage of 230V and 2-pin sockets. Therefore, European devices are compatible with Jordanian plugs vice-versa.
