Jordan is in the Southwest Asian region. It is considered one of the most pleasant, appealing, and peaceful countries to live in. The nation encompasses rocky deserts that also add to its natural beauty. Apart from the gorgeous landmarks, the country has a stable economy and offers numerous advantageous rights to its citizens, making it the favorite destination for settling down.

From free education to healthcare facilities, the citizens acquire the right to enjoy some of the basic perks. Like many other nations across the world, Jordan offers citizenship by investment program along with other schemes to ease immigrants in the long term.
