The Jordanian Duty Free Shops Company was established in 1997, with only one shop in Jordan’s capital of Amman. Evolving from a locally focused outlet into one of Jordan’s top public shareholding companies, the JDFS proudly grew to operate 20 shops, strategically located at the kingdom’s land and sea borders, all setup to serve both arriving and departing tourists and diplomats, with only one focus in mind: 

“Meeting our customer’s retail shopping needs”

From its modest beginning, the Jordanian Duty Free Shops acquired an immaculate growth momentum through strategic planning and development. Where now, the company offers a comprehensive and exciting range of products including the best in Fragrances, Cosmetics, Accessories, Confectionary, Liquors, Cigarettes and Tobacco.

  Committed to providing its range of customers with an extensive shopping experience, the Jordanian Duty Free Shops serves diplomats, non-residential foreigners, and passengers ranging from tourists, businessmen to pilgrims.

Moments after stepping into the Jordanian land, JDFS welcomes you with a smile to explore a multitude of destinations. The Company’s significant growth and business position caught the attention of the Jordanian government that ended up supportively contributing to the company’s mission, by providing strategic spaces for our shops at all borders. Consequently, the JDFS has built a prominent and respectable reputation and a name for itself in the market and among its loyal customers. 

Located at the heart of the Middle East, Jordan is in the centre of the communication routes between five surrounding countries and four continents. With the advantage of political and economic stability, Jordan made its mark as a favoured tourist and investment hub; ultimately presenting the JDFS with the tremendous opportunity for trade and development.
