At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at Jordan and some of the social media accounts you should be following if you’re thinking of moving there.

Facebook Page

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a beautiful kingdom in Western Asia, on the East Bank of the Jordan River, and this Facebook page is the essential diving off point for any expats new to the country. Full of local (and global) businesses based nearby and suggestions of related pages that are full of excellent recommendations, this is a must follow.

I Love Amman City
Facebook Page

Bordered by Saudi Arabia to the east and south, Iraq to the north-east, Syria to the north, Israel, Palestine and the Dead Sea to the west, and the Red Sea to its extreme south-west, the capital city of Jordan is a focal point of culture. The I Love Amman City Facebook page is an epicentre of information for business, relocation, events, entertainment, family, health services and everything else expats may need to live and work successfully in Jordan.

Expats To Collaborate In Amman
Facebook Page | Facebook Group

The Expats To Collaborate In Amman page has been created to enhance the collaboration efforts between expats in Jordan and to help them explore Jordan better and faster. A friendly place where people share their experiences, charitable work, thoughts, social events and occasionally their homes (when looking to find a new flatmate.)

Jordan Expats
Facebook Page

With more than 1,100 Facebook followers, this group of expats share fun sounding social events both in Jordan and further afield, alongside practical listings of flatmates required and questions that they can't find answers for. The administrator for the page has a rather cheeky but warm sense of humour that makes you feel welcome.

Jordan Tourism Board News
Facebook Page

The Jordan Tourism Board News Facebook page will have you packing your suitcase faster than you could say 'Petra, the famed archaeological site of the Nabatean capital dating to around 300 B.C.' Sharing the exceptional jewels of ancient monuments dotted throughout the Jordanian landscape, this is a wonderful source for expats hoping to explore their new home.

Discover Jordan
Facebook Page | Instagram

Born in Chicago, Laura has lived in several countries around the world before landing in Jordan, including the UK and the Netherlands - her gap year somehow turned into an even dozen years of globetrotting. She now calls Jordan home and is raising her family there and running a local travel business, helping expats and visitors alike truly discover Jordan.

The Jordan Times
Facebook Page | Twitter

Reporting both locally and internationally, The Jordan Times is an excellent source of regional, world and business events. Moving to another corner of the globe can be isolating for expats, but following these social media accounts can be an excellent way of making sure current topics are at the top of your thoughts, and a starting point for understanding a new culture.

Expat In Amman
Facebook Page

Focusing on the capital city of Jordan, the Expat in Amman Facebook page is an online collection of classified ads - perfect for expats to discover a new home, find friendly flatmates and look for networking events that could expand their career and social horizons. Definitely one to keep in mind - or perhaps follow for future use.

Sale: Expat Leaving Amman, Jordan
Facebook Page

This Facebook page may come in handy if you're in need of various household items. With a 1,400 strong community of expats, this very practical Facebook page is an essential place to discover and sell secondhand expat essentials.

We’re always on the lookout for more accounts to feature - if you write about living in Jordan on social media, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
