JOD – Jordanian Dinar


The payment processing of this currency is considered to be relatively standardised. However, the beneficiaries might be contacted by the beneficiary/correspondent bank to release the funds.

Currency Guidelines

Besides the standard information, the IBAN format is mandatory (see Appendix VI).

A clear reason / purpose of payment is recommended and consists of a full written description (in English) of the nature of payment to be provided in the remittance information. For example: providing an invoice number without guiding text is considered as insufficient and can result in errors or delays.

Example: Payment of travel expenses – invoice n° 123456789

A purpose of payment code (see Appendix VIII) is mandatory and has to be added to the reason of payment.

This currency accepts three decimal places.

For payments exceeding JOD 10 000, the beneficiaries must provide additional and valid information related to the source of funds/payment (e.g. invoices, copy of contracts, etc.).
