Many nationalities are eligible to get a visa for Jordan upon arrival at their point of entry to the country (except at King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge!). The Jordan Tourism Board has created a comprehensive list of the visa requirements for different countries.
Single Entry Visa (valid 1 month): 40 JOD (approx $56).
Double Entry Visa (valid 3 months): 60 JOD (approx $85).
Multiple Entry Visa (valid 6 months): 120 JOD (approx $170).
You can also purchase a Jordan Pass – “the ultimate sightseeing package that has been especially tailor-made for visitors to the country.”
You buy the Jordan Pass online, before entering the country. It costs 70-90 JOD (approx $99-113), and includes the entrance tickets to over 40 sights and, if you stay a minimum of 3 nights in Jordan, also your visa. Find out more!
King Hussein / Allenby Bridge
You are NOT able to get a visa to Jordan at King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge!
You can enter Jordan only, if you obtain your visa beforehand (e.g. at the Jordanian Embassy in your home country or in Tel Aviv, at the Jordanian Representative Office in Ramallah, or through purchasing a Jordan Pass), or if you meet either of the following conditions:
Existing Visa to Jordan
Besides obtaining a visa beforehand at an Jordanian Embassy or Representative Office, you also allowed to enter Jordan at King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge if you have already crossed via the same bridge from Jordan to Jerusalem, assuming the visa hasn’t expired yet.
Example: If you arrived to Jordan at the airport on June 1 and got a one month visa, then your visa is valid till July 1. If you cross at King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge from Jordan to Jerusalem, then you can return to Jordan via King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge on the same visa any time till July 1. After July 1 you cannot enter Jordan at King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge as your visa has expired.
If you are a group and book a tour to Jordan with us, we can apply for group entry permit on your behalf.
To do this, you must meet all the following conditions:
1. You book a tour to Jordan with us.
2. Your group consist of at least 5 people.
3. You spend at least 2 overnights in Jordan.
4. You arrive and depart together as a group.
5. You send us all your passport details in advance (we will send you what exactly we need).
6. You give us 5 days notice for Europeans, Americans and Canadians; and 14 days notice for other nationalities.
If you arrive at King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge from Israel or Palestine and do not have visa already or meet one of the above 2 conditions, you will be turned back by the Jordanians and refused entry to Jordan. The alternative then is to travel approximately 1h north to enter Jordan at Sheikh Hussein/ Jordan River Crossing, or return to Ramallah or Tel Aviv and obtain a visa at the Jordanian Representative Office or Embassy.
Also note: Entry to Jordan at King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge is not allowed for Israeli citizens. Even if you arrive at the bridge with a non-Israeli passport, the Jordanian officials may send you back if they realize that you also have Israeli citizenship. The Sheikh Hussein/ Jordan River and Wadi Araba/ Yitzhak Rabin Border Crossings are the points of entry to Jordan for Israeli passport holders.
Wadi Araba / Yitzhak Rabin Crossing
If travelers enter and leave through this border crossing, and if they stay more than 3 nights (i.e. 4 nights and more) Visa fess and Exit Taxes are waived.
If travelers stay less than 4 nights (0-3 nights), they still have to pay the usual 40JD for Visa, and 10JD for Exit Taxes (the Jordan Pass might be an attractive option then).
