VISAS AND PASSPORTS
Most nationalities can obtain the following visa types at arrival to a Jordanian border point – except the King Hussein Bridge/Allenby Bridge crossing, where no visas are issued. The Visa requirement for Jordan is shown on the Jordan Tourism Board.
Single Entry Visa (valid for 1 month): 40 JOD (approx. US$56).
Double Entry Visa (valid for 3 months): 60 JOD (approx. US$85).

Jordan Pass is the official tourist package providing entry to over 40 top attractions using just one ticket. It costs 70-90 JOD (approx. $ 99-113), and you can buy it online before entering the country. In addition, provided you spend at least 3 nights (4 days) in the Kingdom, the visa fees are included.

PLEASE NOTE: The Jordanian authorities do not grant entry visas to Jordan at Allenby/ King Hussein Bridge. Tourists who wish to travel to Jordan via Allenby/ King Hussein Bridge must be in possession of a visa in advance. You may obtain your visa in your home country, at the Jordanian Embassy in Tel Aviv or the Jordanian Representative Office in Ramallah City in the West Bank.
Those who leave Jordan to Jerusalem via Allenby/ King Hussein Bridge may return to Jordan by showing the exit visa if it is valid. For example: if you have already got a visa on arrival in Amman at Queen Alia Airport, you need another visa to re-enter Jordan. However, you may re-enter Jordan through Allenby/ King Hussein on that same Amman/ Queen Alia Airport visa if your exit from Jordan and re-entry are within the validity of that visa. If your visa has been expired, you are not allowed to go back to Jordan through King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge by the Jordanian authorities. The alternative is to travel to enter Jordan through Jordan River Border Crossing/ Sheikh Hussein in the north or to apply for a new entry visa from the Jordanian Embassy in Tel Aviv or the representative office in Ramallah if you plan to go back through King Hussein/ Allenby Bridge.
We can apply for a group entry permit if you are a group consists of at least 5 people or more and met with the following conditions:
The group consists of at least 5 people
The group spent at least 2 overnights in Jordan
The whole group arrives and departs together as a group
Passport details of the group
The whole process takes 5 days for Americans, Canadians, and Europeans, and 14 days for other nationalities.
Please note, if the above conditions are not met, your entry to Jordanian through the Allenby/ King Hussein Bridge will be refused by the Jordanian authority. The alternative to entering Jordan through the Jordan River/Sheikh Hussein crossing which is one hour away north Allenby bridge or returns to apply for your visa from Jordanian Embassy in Tel Aviv or the Jordanian representative office in Ramallah.
Please note, certain nationalities require an entry visa to be obtained prior to travel, and this is usually for citizens from poor countries. Entry to Jordan for Israeli citizens through Allenby / Sheikh Hussein Bridge is not allowed. Israeli passport holders can enter Jordan through Jordan River Crossing, Arava border, or Queen Alia International airport.
Traveler crossing to Jordan through Yitzhak Rabin/ Araba border crossing and stay 4 nights or more, you do not pay any bridge fees (including Visa and Exit Tax fees). This assumes you enter and depart via the same crossing. If a traveler stays less than 4 nights (0-3 nights), he/she have to pay for his Visa (40 JOD) and Exit Tax (10 JOD)
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.
Traveling to countries that have no diplomatic relation with Israel can be problematic, also traveling to Israel with stamps from most of the Arab countries and countries like Iran, Pakistan can cause problems as well. Below we have put some information that might be helpful to avoid these problems.
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.
The Jordanian border officers do not stamp passports at Allenby/ King Hussein Bridge. You will receive the stamp on a separate piece of paper and not your passport. However, if you are not given this extra paper, before handing over your documents do tell the officer you want to be stamped on a separate piece of paper.
We do our best to keep the above information updated, but please keep in mind that sometimes, the regulation changes quickly without any previous notice. Therefore, we at JFA can’t assure any certainty for the above information. Please keep your plans flexible with enough time for any complications.
