How can I get a visa for Jordan?
Jordan issues tourist visas upon arrival to tourists from over 130 countries, saving you the trouble of applying for a visa at an embassy. This visa will cost 40JOD (around $56USD). If your country is not included in this list, you will be able to obtain a visa either online, or through the embassy. Please contact the Jordanian Embassy in your country of residence to get accurate information. Click here to see if your country is eligible for a visa upon entry. Your passport should be valid for at least six months and must remain valid for at least six months after your entry into Jordan. One blank page is required for your entry stamp. Pro-tip: If you're eligible for a visa upon arrival, consider purchasing the Jordan Pass to save money and time during your trip to Jordan. The Pass offers entry to 36 tourist attractions including Petra, Jerash and Wadi Rum. Provided you're spending 3 or more consecutive nights in Jordan, the purchase of this pass also waives your visa fee. To learn more or to buy the Jordan Pass click here.
