Jordan visa from Overland arrival

edited May 2009 in - Other M East
Your site says that one can get a visa apon arriving by air in Jordan. What if one arrives overland, can you get a visa at the border?

    If you are arriving from Israel and thru the Allenby Bridge into Jordan you will need a visa prior to arrival from the Embassy.
    If you come in from Eilat or Sheik Hussein bridge then you can get a visa upon arrival. Also when arriving via plane you can visa at the airport -
    Only crossing Allenby Bridge no visa

    Dear Hans,

    I am reading here that you were by car in Saudi Arabia in May. How did you come in Saudi Arabia by car? Did you have a transit visa? How to arrange this?
    Next year we would like to drive from Oman back to Holland through UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan etc. I hope you have soms usefull tips.

    My friend and I will be travelling to Syria by car from Beirut. We are both Australians, can we get a visa at the Syrian/Lebanese border? We then want to travel through Syria to Jordan also by car or bus, can we also get a visa at the border for Jordan? We only have approx dates that we will arrive into Beirut on the 24th September and then will leave around the 29th September into Syria and around the 3rd October into Jordan.
    Many thanks for your help.

    Hi Nienie
    We were not yet in Jordan. We plan to drive from Cape Town to Amsterdam (in April/May next year) via o.a. Sudan were we wil cross the Red Sea to Saudi Arabia and than drive on to Jordan, Syria etc.
    I heard from people who did the same trip that you cannot get a visa for Saudi if you don't have a visa for the next country you want to visit (in our case Jordan). They want to make sure that you are leaving the country.

    Hello Hans,
    Thanks for your reaction. That's what we also heard from people coming from Sudan. We can't find stories yet of crossing the Saudi border from the UAE. But we are now trying to find out how to arrange the Jordan visa in advance. Have fun preparing your trip!!

    I need somebody to advice if national of Nigeria can get Jordan visa on arrival at the airport. I can find Jordan embassy in Nigeria.


  • edited 1:40PM
    Waheed - you will need to organise your visa prior to your arrival into Jordan. there is no embassy in Nigeria, however, you should contact the Embassy in a neighbouring country to get this. there are embassies in Sudan, Pretoria. i am sure they can assist you.

    Madel - you don't say what passport your b/f is travelling on. the issue of his visa will very much depend on this. Bus from Dubai to Jordan??? Do you have any idea of the distance to be covered? If it could be done (and I doubt this due to borders etc) then it would take a very long time. there is much desert to be covered and backpacking just isn't an option I'm afraid. Flights from Dubai to Jordan are frequent, take approx 3 or 4 hours and can be quite cheap.

    Ronny - there is no Embassy of Jordan in Nigeria. Which passport do you travel on as you may be eligible for visa on arrival. If not, then you need to contact the embassy in a neighbouring country for your pre-arrival visa

    Is it possible to get a visa thru hotel? please advise.

  • edited 1:40PM
    Mika - you cannot get a visa for Jordan through a hotel. You need to call the Jordan embassy again and find out what is the hold up although sometimes it can take some time.

    Please note that changes to visa regulations change rapidly here and you should always contact the relevant embassy for updated requirements

    My fiance and I live in the UAE and she needs to perform a surgery in Jordan. We're flying into Jordan but the thing is we need to travel back to Dubai by road or water as her surgery does not permit her to travel by air for 6 weeks. 6 weeks is too long a period to stay in Jordan though. If we drive down from the UAE to Jordan and back, will it be a problem? Will we have any issues traveling through Saudi Arabia because we're not married? We both hold American passports.

    Please help!

    You need to obtain a visa from the Jordan Embassy, you cannot cross at the border without it.
