I used to live in Jordan between 2000 and 2002 I left the country in 2002 and they told me I cannot enter Jordan again for 4 years. I am now a British citizen.
Few months ago I went on a holiday from the UK to Jordan. When I arrived at the airport they didn't allow me to enter as they said you can't enter Jordan because of the 4 year ban, even though it's been much longer than 4 years. After waiting few hours and talking with the officials they allowed me to go through and told me to consult a police station about the issue to resolve it.
I didn't have enough time to go to the police station.
This year I've booked a flight to Baghdad with the Jordanian airlines. The flight from Heathrow to Baghdad has a layover of 10 hours in Jordan before it goes to Baghdad. During this 10 hours we'll be taken to a hotel to stay until our flight to Baghdad starts.
I was wondering would I get another problem at the airport in Jordan this time as well, or would it not matter this time because it's just a layover and I'm not visiting Jordan itself? I've already booked my flight and I'm really worried that I might encounter another problem in Jordan.
