No, the countries considered as providing adequate protection are listed by the EU Commission and currently are Andorra, Argentina, Canada (commercial organizations), Faroe Islands, Guernsey, Israel, Isle of Man, Japan, Jersey, New Zealand, Switzerland, and Uruguay.Adequacy talks are ongoing with South Korea.

You can verify the list at the following link: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_en

Of course, data transfers to or from Jordan can be based on Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC). You will need a data protection agreement between the controller and the processor with the SCC included.

Here you can find a free template of Standard Contractual Clauses as required from the EU Commission:
