Upon arrival in Jordan, you need to present your passport, which must have the Jordanian Visa Sticker, along with your returning flight confirmation and documents that specify what you will be doing while in Jordan.

A small and peaceful country in the heart of the Middle East, Jordan is a fascinating place that promises to keep you busy during your entire trip. Jordan has several kilometers of wonderful beach access to the Dead Sea, sure to excite any water-loving travelers. No drowning or shark attacks there, since the Dead Sea is so salty that nothing lives in it, and the high salt content makes everything incredibly buoyant. Aside from the Dead Sea, there are many attractions such as the Sharhabil Bin Hassneh EcoPark, which is a retreat for both locals and tourists. Many tourists visit Jordan to observe the magnificent archaeological ruins of Petra. You are bound to have a great experience in Jordan.

Before planning your trip, you need to find out whether or not you need a visa to cross the border. Lucky for you, the visa policy of Jordan is lenient, so almost everyone has an easy time getting into the country. There are 10 countries whose citizens are visa-exempt, and citizens of another 120 states and jurisdictions are eligible for a visa on arrival. That leaves only a handful of nationalities that are required to get a visa from the Jordanian embassy.

If you want to find out which rule applies to you, you can take a look at Jordan’s visa policy. However, we suggest that you use the Visa Checker Tool located in the top right corner of this page. Just select your country of origin from the drag-down menu on the left and choose Jordan as your destination on the right. If you are not required to get a Jordan visa, you are good to go, however if you need one, the Visa Checker provides a list of embassies near you.

Since electronic visas are not part of Jordan's current visa policy, iVisa unfortunately cannot help you with the application process. However, we still want to help, which is why we offer a free 24/7 support service to answer any burning questions you may have about visas.

If you find out that you need a visa for Jordan, you'll need to find out what are your specific application requirements. You can find a lot of information online, although we recommend that you contact the embassy itself and ask your questions there. The information online is not always the most reliable, leading potentially to critical application errors. Nevertheless, what iVisa can tell you is that, as a general rule, you'll require a passport valid for at least another 6 months beyond your date of departure from Jordan. You will also need evidence of a non-refundable return flight ticket. For further information, contact the diplomatic mission.

For the time being, information is all we can provide, but we hope that the above helps! Safe travels.
