My husband and I will be living in Jordan starting in August and will have a leased car during that time. We would like to vacation in Israel for a few days in early September. What are some of our choices for land crossing? Can we take our car across? Also we have visited and worked in other middle eastern countries such as Kuwait, UEA, and Oman and have these stamps in our passport. Will this cause major issues at the border? We hold American passports. Any advice or resources…
So I have a few questions regarding learning Arabic in the Middle East, Jordan specifically.
1) Are there any places in Jordan to study Amiyya (Jordanian dialect) rather than MSA? I am far more interested in immersion in local culture than formal Arabic.
2) Coming from a background of nearly no arabic-- only basic words known-- how long of an intensive program would help me become conversational? My maximum time that I could spend in Jordan is 7 months.
3) Are there homestays available for…
Need some help and suggestions, please.
We are tight on time we can spend in Israel, but we really want to visit Petra in Jordan.
I was looking into 2days/one night tour options.

Also, it will be in mid August, an recommendations on surviving in the desert while in Petra?
Hello everyone! My brother and I are thinking of driving to southern Jordan in August. We are leaving from Amman. If you are planning to visit some of the sites (Petra, Wadi Rum, Wadi Mujib, Dhana, etc and obviously any other places that can only be reached by taxi!), shoot me a message :)We are looking for 1~2 people max to carpool.
Looking to visit Jordan later this year, with a possibility of living there (if me and my family like it). From all the research I've done, and speaking to others, it sounds like a fab place!
Just wondering, what's the situation with a residence visa there? I mean, is it possible to convert the tourist visa into a residence visa?
Appreciate the help!
I'm new here so I hope I'm posting this in the correct area.
I intend to travel to Jordan next month from where i intend to travel to Jerusalem from king Hussein bridge/Allenby bridge after 4 days in Jordan. I understand that I can get a single entry visa upon arrival at queen alia airport. I will stay in Jerusalem for about a week and then I intend to return to Jordan to catch my flight through the same bridge. I'm just concerned about whether my single entry visa will be accepted…

I have now been in Jordan for two weeks, rented a car (from Monte Carlo company and all worked perfect) and traveled alone around the country, from Madaba with Monte Nebo of course, via Karak to Petra, then to Wadi Rum which was my main goal, however. I stayed there unfortunately only three days, but would like to stay a long time, however, the time was my enemy LOL and I had to continue then to Aqaba.
