Jordan Travel Visa Question

edited April 2009 in Middle East
Hello all,

I have a quick question for you. My gf and I are leaving for Jordan shortly and we were wondering if there were any options to get a VISA that does not require registration at a police station. Our stay is for 20 days and ideally we were hoping to get a VISA that covers this period.

Is this at all possible? Or are we just better off getting it at the airport upon arrival and then registering it within the first two weeks at any police station?

Thanks very much for your help!

    Hi Jayman - the first hotel you stay at will give your passport/visa details to the police. If you get your visa on arrival at the airport it will be issued for 30 days. Plenty of time

    Jordan is fantastic - enjoy

    Great dialogue.

    I am planning to travel from Syria to Jordan and then finally to Egypt in November 2009. With respect to visas, I will be obtaining the Syrian visa prior to leaving Canada (since I understand that I cannot obtain one at the airport). I will be travelling overland to Jordan and Egypt, can I obtain these visas when I arrive at the border crossings? Finally, I am trying to find the visa photo requirements for the Jordan visa. Does anyone know whether they are strict with the dimensions of the face, neutral facial expression, dimensions of the photo?

    Jocelyne - you can obtain your Jordan and Egypt visas at the border crossings. You do not need a photo for the Jordan visa. You produce your passport and they will put a stamp into it for you.

    Daniya - As an Iraqi passport holder you do not need a visa to enter Jordan.

    I'm a bit confused by your answers Lesley, regarding the required documents for Iraqi passport holders. I have read various articles, one says a visa is required before travel, and a Iraqi passport holder must apply in Iraq. Your saying nothing is required?? So which is it? Also, what passport series is required for an Iraqi citizen, to enter Amman, Jordan?
  • edited 9:29AM
    Alecia - this is taken directly from the Embassy of Jordan website:

    A Visa is required by all except the following:

    Nationals of Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syrian Arab Republic, United Arab Emirates and Yemen for maximum stays of 1 month (extensions may be obtained at the nearest police station)

    I am not sure what you mean by passport series? It will need to be a valid passport with at least 6 months left before expiry.

    Please keep in mind that rules for visas and entry can change and you should always consult the Embassy for up to date information.

    hi i'm a canadian citizen and would like to visit Jordan for two weeks.do i require a visa and how can i get it.

    Shawn - sorry it's taken me so long, I hadn't received a notification that you had posted. you will definitely need a work visa. the company that is offering you the job should be assisting you with this, it will take some time, so i suggest that you are in touch with the company to find out how they will assist you. Aqaba is very much a touristique area and rents are generally high in the city centre. You may find better rates out of the city but realtors will be able to help you with this, I have no experience in the rental market there.

    Good luck

    NS - yes you need a visa. You can get a single entry visa on arrival at Amman airport. It is very, very easy........make sure you have US$ as they don't accept JD, take this with your valid passport to the Visa counter, they will stamp your passport and you are off!! Enjoy

    My husband and I are planning to travel to Jordan in December. We are US passport holders currently living and working in Qatar. I read your response saying USD were required to pay for the visa at the airport. Will they accept Qatari Riyals or do we need to carry USD with us?

    I'm an Egyptian, I did a cycling trip from Cairo and was heading to Amman, I arrived at Neuibaa port in Egypt. Booked a ferry to Jordan. The Jordanian officer refused to let me on the ferry and said i better for wait for the next one. I got on the next one but they kept my passport. I was interrogated by the police there and they decided to send me back to Egypt. I told them that i have asked the embassy and they said i don't need any visas or paperwork prior to traveling but i never got a response.

    Madel - it will depend on what passport your b/f travels, many nationalities are able to purchase their passport on arrival. He can check with the embassy in Dubai and they will advise him.

    Madel - ok I think I understand that you will be working in Jordan and then you will want to go back to Dubai to visit your b/f. I am not sure if you need a visa for Dubai or not. You would be best to look at the immigration site of the UAE for exact and correct information.

    To immigrate to Jordan is possible, however, I do not know the terms and conditions of this. You are best to contact the Embassy of Jordan or to search on the internet for all the information you need, such as time/forms/costs etc.

    Good luck

    Karl, some of the electronics can be quite expensive in Jordan. Depending on where you are coming from you may like to get such things duty free or in other Aisa countries where you can get a good deal.

    There are a number of mobile telephone companies operating in Jordan - I have used Zain and Orange and have good results with both of them.

    Itsmeeh009 - yes you require a pre-arrival visa. You need to complete application forms and provide the documentation they require. Contact the Embassy of Jordan in Dubai for assistance with this
