Planning to travel back in time by exploring the impressive sandstone city of Petra? You will need a visa before you can explore the 1.2 km long canyon, which narrow walls will lead you directly to Petra’s entrance.
Petra is not the only attraction the country has to offer. Jordan is filled with ancient ruins and museums that will tell you the stories of their ancestors. Remember to travel across the country's vast landscapes and enjoy the Jordanian hospitality.
However, before visiting Jordan from the Philippines, you must first obtain the correct documentation to enter the country. Here is everything you need to know about the Jordan tourist visa, including a step-by-step guide to applying for your visa online.
What COVID-19 requirements should I consider before traveling to Jordan?
Incoming travelers must have health insurance upon arrival in Jordan. COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted, and passengers do not need to present vaccination certificates on entry.
However, passengers do need to fill out the Jordan Health Declaration Form. Remember that COVID-19 regulations can change without notice. We recommend double-checking with your airline or the relevant government websites before your trip.
