Students arriving in a new country for studies abroad have enough on their minds without having to worry about transportation from the airport. The upshot: don’t worry about finding a taxi and negotiating the price of the 40 minute drive into Amman from the airport.
As a hospitality to incoming students, one of the Institute’s friendly drivers greets each new student upon arrival at Queen Alia International Airport in Amman (the student will see his or her name on a placard held high by our driver to the right upon leaving the baggage claim area), and promptly takes them to his or her new home. This offer is open to students with reservations in Qasid Housing, or for those with Independent Housing plans.
At the completion of one’s studies at Qasid, our driver will take each student back to the airport.
As a complimentary service upon your initial arrival in Amman, Qasid can bring you from the airport to your residence at any hour, day or night. We can also arrange a return ride to the airport for your departure flight at the end of your stay. This form is available for both requests, and is required only for arriving students (even if you are just opting out).
To be eligible for arrival shuttle service, if you are attending the winter, spring, or fall quarters, we must receive this form from you within 1 week of your actual arrival date. And for the summer quarter, this deadline is 2 weeks in advance.
Another stipulation for either arrival or departure shuttle service is that rides are only provided between 1 week prior to the first day of Orientation for your first term and 2 weeks after the last class of your final term. Airport transport for all intermittent trips taken during your attendance at Qasid (a six month visa renewal excursion, for example) will be your responsibility.
Confirmation is Required
If you are on your way to Qasid to begin your studies, please confirm this in the Airport Transportation Request Form linked below, whether you would like to make use of this service for your arrival, or if you’d prefer to decline. And if you will be requesting this service, then complete and submit the subsequent, travel information form. If you change your plans, you may resubmit this form at any time within the arrival deadlines mentioned above. If your plans change after these dates, please contact Qasid directly, as soon as possible, via phone or email.
On the other hand, if you will soon be leaving Amman from Qasid after concluding your studies here and would like a ride to the airport for your departure, you may select that option in the Airport Transportation Request Form linked below, and submit the form that follows no later than 10 business days before your flight.
Please note that you will need to login to the Qasid Student Information System (SIS) in order to access the form. If you are not a student, contact us to request access to the form.
