The Government of Jordan does not fully meet the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking; however, it is making significant efforts to do so.
The government demonstrated increasing efforts compared to the previous reporting period; therefore Jordan remained on Tier 2. The government demonstrated increasing efforts by identifying and providing care to an increased number of victims and demonstrated strong efforts to investigate, prosecute, and convict traffickers. It also continued to improve the standard operating procedures SOPs within the national victim referral mechanism for authorities to systematically identify and refer victims to protection services.
However, the government did not meet the minimum standards in several key areas. Under Jordan's anti-trafficking law, penalties for sex trafficking offenses were not commensurate with penalties prescribed for other serious crimes. Jordanian authorities did not enact draft amendments to the anti-trafficking law, and a lack of sufficient resources hindered victim identification and care. Victims — including victims of domestic servitude — continued to be vulnerable to arrest, imprisonment, and deportation for acts committed as a direct result of being subjected to trafficking, such as immigration violations and fleeing abusive employers.
The government maintained strong anti-trafficking law enforcement efforts. The anti-human trafficking law criminalized sex and labor trafficking.
These penalties were sufficiently stringent. However, by allowing for a fine in lieu of imprisonment, the penalties prescribed for sex trafficking were not commensurate with the penalties prescribed for other serious crimes, such as rape. The law prescribed penalties of up to 10 years imprisonment and a fine for the sex trafficking and forced labor of children, as well as for the sex trafficking of adults and other forms of adult trafficking involving aggravating circumstances.
