Hello,
I'm planning to buy a Jordan pass but I'm not sure if I can benefit the visa waive. I'm going to enter Jordan twice. I'm going by plane and I'm going to stay there for 12 days, then cross the border to Israel in Aqaba and stay in Israel for 10 days. Then I will enter Jordan again by the Sheikh Hussein Bridge, in order to get he flight back home. Do I have to ask for Double Entry visa when I first arrive and pay the 60 JOD fee, losting the waive visa fee ? Or can I pay only 20 JOD (the…

This may or may not help people thinking of crossing the border (as some info on the internet is out of date), situation as of 01-April-2016

There are 3 crossings from Israel into Jordan, I believe in Aqaba you can only cross with a tour group so this information only applies to the middle and northern borders. The King Hussein// Allenby bridge crossing (middle crossing), you can not get a visa on arrival, so I went to the Sheik Hussein crossing in the north. I had fears it would take 2 hours…

Hi,

I have a flight landing in Amman and a separate flight flying out of Amman six hours later. Does anyone know if this qualifies for a transit visa so that I don't have to pay for a single entry visa? The two flights are not connected as I had to buy them separately. Thanks.

Hi to all,
I have done my homework but just want to check it with you experts, especially local ones.
I will travel to Jordan and arrive via air on Turkish airlines to Aqaba and also exit Jordan through Aqaba airport.
I understand those who arrive by air and depart by air at Aqaba DO NOT PAY a visa fee; IS THIS TRUE?
Also, any suggestions on the following:
A reasonably-priced day trip to Wadi Rum from Aqaba? I am traveling alone but would gladly join a group.
Does anyone have any thoughts or comments…

Hey,
My name is Sophie, I am a 28yr old female from NZ.
I have been studying Arabic in Amman but my course finishes on the 30th and I want to travel around Jordan for approximately ten days.

Does anyone want to split the cost of a taxi / guide / car hire?
My understanding is that this makes for a much better trip than taking public transport and when the costs are split it becomes fairly economical.

Im looking at going to Madaba, Dead Sea, Petra, Wadi Rum and Aqaba etc.

Thanks,
-Sophie

HI there,

I am DIego and I am new here. I'd like to travel to Amman on the 30th. I am Italin citizen and I was wonder how the VISA process works. If I am not mistaken it's possible to get a VOA, but not sure about it. Plus, I'd like to know if it's possible to enter the country just with a one way ticket or if I do have to buy a round trip ticket or BTW a ticket that shows my way out of the country. My problem is that I am in Thailand at the moment, so I can't apply for a VISA inside a…

My wife and I will be in Aqaba and wish to go to Petra on our own for the day. Do the buses or shared mini vans that leave Aqaba to Petra run all morning and what is the cost? Or alternatively, what would the cost of a taxi be for us to take instead? When we want to return from Petra, do mini vans or buses go back to Aqaba after say 4:00 p.m. and where would we catch them. Failing that, would it be fairly easy to catch a taxi back to Aqaba and where would be the best place to catch one and…

Hi all, I am studying here in Jordan (not Amman) and my school doesn't help with iqamas, so am here on a tourist visa. I got the first extension after the first month, and the police told me for the second extension I would need to go to the Interior Ministry and get my fingerprints taken again. Yet other foreigners are telling me I need to go to the Administration of Iqamas and Borders? Can anyone clarify what the current procedure is? My second question is, is it possible to get a multiple…
