Tourist accommodation facilities e-classification system goes online

An electronic classification system of tourist accommodation facilities has gone live in a bid to give tourists, visitors and travel agents to learn beforehand the classification and level of service at any tourist facility they intend to stay at.

Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Majd Shweikeh said the e-classification system is the fruit of a partnership between the ministry and the Jordan Tourism Development Project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in cooperation with the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority, the Petra Development & Tourism Region Authority, and the Jordan Hotel Association.

The minister added that this service comes within the framework of the Ministry's efforts to keep abreast with the best international practices in the tourism sector, describing the project as the fruit of a partnership between the Ministry, USAID and private sector stakeholders.
