Jordan Customs uses the Customs Integrated Tariff System (CITS), which importers may utilize to determine commodity tariffs, import conditions and commodity trade agreements, regulations and requirements of the commodity trade.  For further information on customs procedures, please refer to the following website:  customs.gov.jo. The FTA eliminates most duties and tariffs on commerce between the U.S. and Jordan.  Additional taxes may apply to some products; a complete description of these commodities is also available at the Customs Department website. Detailed lists of the general and special sales tax can be viewed at the Jordan’s Income and Sales Tax Department’s website at:  istd.gov.jo
