Amman – MENA Herald: Residents of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan can now apply for Italy visas and enrol for biometrics at a new visa application centre opened in the capital city of Amman.

Now, with this new center, we have an important step towards a further improvement of our visa services and I am confident that our efforts will increase the efficiency and the satisfaction of the Jordanian travelers and of the business community”.
