Jordan's King Abdullah II will make an official visit to New Zealand from November 28 to 30, Prime Minister John Key has announced.

It's a reciprocal visit and follows the 2013 visit to Jordan by the previous governor-general, Sir Jerry Mateparae.

"New Zealand and Jordan have a strong bilateral relationship, one which has grown even closer through our time serving together on the Security Council last year," Mr Key said.

"King Abdullah's visit will be an opportunity to hear Jordan's important perspectives on Middle East issues, the Middle East peace process, Iraq and broader efforts to counter ISIL."
