>> VISA PROCEDURES

All EU, American, and Canadian citizens do not need a visa prior to their arrival. Other nationalities should check with the nearest Jordanian consulate before confirming their tour.

All non restricted nationalities can obtain visas upon arrival at all borders and airports. The cost of a single entry visa is 10 Jordanian Dinars (around $ 15) paid in local currency. All borders have money exchange kiosks available.

Departure taxes are included in your airline ticket. No departure tax is required at any airport. Land borders require a 5 Jordanian Dinar departure tax.

Visa photos are not required.

 

>> BORDERS

Land borders to and from Israel include Araba, and Sheik Hussein. Allenby or King Hussein is only a crossing and does not issue visas. One must have a multiple entry visa or a visa prior to arrival if Allenby Bridge is used.

Land borders to and from Syria are Ramtha and Jaber borders. Visas are issued at each border so depending on one’s nationality, they can be obtained upon arrival.

It is advisable to ask the relevant consulates for detailed visa procedures.

 

>> AREA

The area of Jordan is 89,342 km² or, 45,495 sq mi 

 

>> LANGUAGE

The official language of Jordan is Arabic. English however is widely spoken – especially in cities and tourist sites. Many Jordanians have traveled or have been educated abroad so French, German, Italian and Spanish are also spoken, but to a lesser extent. Speaking Arabic is easier than you might think and attempting a few basic words will gain you respect from the locals and is a good way to break the ice.
