On the Jordanian side, the operation hours for holidays are usually announced at very short notice. When making your travel plans, keep upcoming holidays in mind, and be prepared to be flexible.

We recommend being at the border about 30-60 minutes before its closing time.

You will expect different fees when crossing the border, e.g., for transport between the border terminals (Standard Shuttle or VIP Service), taxes or visas. Please note that these fees are not included in the price for the transfer.

Border terminal exit tax per person: 10 JOD (approx. 15 US$).

At the Sheikh Hussein/ Jordan River crossing border, you have to take a shuttle bus to cross the space between the border terminals:

The VIP Service is a provision run by the staff at the borders to enable faster crossing. The service includes “VIP” waiting rooms, assistance with immigration, security and luggage; plus a private van shuttle between the terminals. Usually, clients go to the front of any queues. The VIP service can save lots of frustration, speed up the crossing considerably (especially when the border is busy) and allow it to be done more comfortably. Crossing from Jerusalem to Jordan, using the VIP service means you normally get through the border in 1 hour (without, it can be up to 4 hours on a busy day). Please note, the VIP service doesn’t mean you get less checks, and you still may have to wait if the authorities want to ask you any questions. Please let us know if you would like to use the service, as this affects the timing of the onward transportation.

We, at Jerusalem from Amman, understand that plans can change, so you can change dates, cancel, or change your pickup point. Please note that cancellation fees will be charged subject to the cancellation policy as indicated on the tour page.

The Israeli authorities determine the right of entry into Israel/ Palestine territories since it controls the entry and exit at all borders. Americans, Canadians and citizens of most western countries do not need a visa to come to Israel. On entry, visitors are granted leave to enter for a period of up to 3 months. For more information and a list of countries that do not need a visa, click here.

If you are required to apply for a visa in advance you should apply for your visa in your country of origin or at any Israeli Embassy.
Israeli border officials have on occasions used an entry stamp for certain travelers that states Palestinian Authority or Judea and Samaria only. This restriction effectively limits travelers who receive these stamps. To avoid this kind of visa, make sure that you state you want to visit Israel and Jerusalem if asked.

Since January 2013 a pilot scheme has been introduced whereby visitors are given an entry card instead of an entry stamp on arrival. This card has a scanned copy of your passport details along with your name and date of entry. You should keep this card with your passport until you leave. This is evidence of your legal entry into Israel and may be required.
