The Jordan Pass is one of the best resources for tourists visiting Jordan. However there are some cases when we do not recommend you to purchase it:
If you are staying less than 3 whole nights, your visa fee will not be waived and you will be asked to pay the visa fee (about 60 USD) upon departure.
If you are under 12 years old, you can enter tourists attractions for free when accompanied by parents.
If you hold an Arabic nationality, you are able to pay discounted local entrance fees.
Jordan is a small but beautiful country in the Middle East, and it is also among the most friendly, modern, and liberal states in the area. It is not like any other predominantly-Muslim country. They respect other people’s cultures as long as they receive respect in return. Your stay in Jordan will be a pleasant one if you decide to visit the region. However, before you start planning your trip, there are a few things you should know first.
As far as the entry requirements are concerned, you will find that Jordan has a pretty lenient visa policy. Like any other country, it has a few visa-exempt nationalities (12, to be more precise). The citizens of Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Tunisia, and the United Arab Emirates can travel and stay in Jordan for a period that varies between 1 and 2 months. Lebanese citizens do not even need a passport to enter Jordan.
Apart from the visa exemption, Jordan issues visas on arrival for the citizens of 120 countries and territories. The eligible nationalities can stay for up to 2 months in Jordan, except for the citizens of Algeria, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Morocco, South Africa, and South Korea, which can spend only 30 days in Jordan.
All other nationalities that are neither visa-exempt nor eligible for a visa on arrival must pay a visit to the nearest Jordan diplomatic mission and apply for a standard visa. Another aspect that may interest you is that Jordan issues something called a Jordan Pass. The document not only covers the visa fees, but it includes free entrance to 36 tourist attractions in Jordan, including a 3-day (consecutive) visit to Petra, one of Jordan’s most popular tourist attractions. The Jordan Pass must be purchased before you arrive in Jordan, and when you leave, you must prove that you stayed for at least 3 consecutive days. If you do not, you will be made to pay the visa fee before leaving. Also, if you arrive in Jordan and acquire a visa on arrival but still want to buy a Jordan Pass, the fees are not waived for either of them. That is why you must apply for the latter before departure. iVisa can help with that.
Leaving entry requirements aside, Jordan is a country worth visiting. For one, you can visit Petra, which is the most popular attraction in the country. The location is gorgeous, and you will go back home with some fantastic photos and experiences. You simply can’t travel to Jordan without visiting Petra.
Also, you should know that while Jordan is mostly land-locked, you can still access the Dead Sea. You may want to get in the water and see how it feels to float without the danger of drowning. The high concentration of salt in the water can keep you afloat without moving a finger. However, please keep in mind that you must not have a single scratch on your body if you want to go into the water. As mentioned above, the concentration of salt is very high, and even a scratch can be very painful when it comes into contact with the water.
Sharhabil Bin Hassneh EcoPark is yet another place worth visiting while in Jordan. The park was recently rehabilitated, and it is now a retreat for locals and tourists. You can find a nice place in the shade where you can have a picnic, take long walks among beautiful surroundings, see the Ziqlab dam and lake, and if you want, you can stay in one of the air-conditioned cabins.
At the same time, you cannot go to Jordan and not visit Ian. It is a spice and vegetable market in downtown Amman. The people who own the market are called Attareen. Attar means perfume producer. These people are so good at what they do that they are able to tell you the use of every single herb or spice they sell. While you can buy a few of them, the experience as a whole is interesting.
The national language in Jordan is Arabic, but if you speak English, you will not have any issues getting around. Most Jordanians can speak English. It is highly common among young people or those who live in urban areas, as well as in popular tourist locations. French and German are the second and third most common languages.
The cuisine in Jordan is similar to others in the Middle East. The national dish is called mansaf, and it is made with jameed, which is a sun-dried yogurt. The best place you can eat mansaf is the Jerusalem restaurant in Amman. As far as safety is concerned, Jordan is one of the safest countries in the Middle East. It is also very liberal. Nobody will give you unpleasant looks while walking down the street wearing Western clothing. Even Jordanian women often wear modern clothes. While most people are Muslim, Jordanians tolerate other religions very well. However, just as a sign of respect, we recommend that you wear appropriate clothing when you visit religious sites. The crime rate is low, and you have nothing to worry about when you visit Jordan.
Health-wise, there is not much to say. As when you visit any other place in the world, you have to be careful where you buy your food from. The street vendors may sometime prepare the food in places that are not totally clean, and you should be careful on that front. However, even if you become ill while in Jordan, the hospitals in this country are world-renowned. In fact, Jordan is no stranger to medical tourism since it has some of the best-equipped hospitals in the region.
As for the people, Jordanians are incredibly hospitable and kind to strangers. They will jump in and help you with anything you may need. In fact, hitchhiking in Jordan is very easy. The locals are willing to stop and take anyone in their car even if it is only for a 5-minute ride. Nevertheless, you have to show them respect as well. For example, while eating in public during Ramadan is not prohibited, you should avoid doing it as a sign of respect. Also, please refrain from saying anything negative about the monarchy. Jordanians will not appreciate that.
The bottom line is that Jordan is a lovely country to visit. You are going to have a wonderful time there. You will find lots to see and do, the people are lovely and respectful, and you will create incredible memories there.
