Jordan visa on arrival application

At the airports of Aqaba and Queen Alia, as well as the majority of border crossings with the exception of King Hussein/Allenby Bridge, you can apply for a Jordan visa upon arrival. Nothing else has to be done prior. When you get to the airport or entrance point:

  • approach the visa on arrival counters. There are usually two immigration officers present. One will ask you questions regarding your trip, whereas the other will verify your documents and stamp your visa
  • submit the required documents and pay the Jordan visa on arrival fee (JOD 40). Make sure you have the cash for the fee ready
  • once your visa is stamped, you can enter Jordan

Jordan visa on arrival fee

The cost of a visa on arrival is JOD 40, or roughly USD 56.

If you are not entering from the airports, you must also pay an exit tax of JOD 10 at the border. Remember to carry cash for the visa fees, as not all borders have credit/debit card facilities.

Jordan visa on arrival validity

You will be issued a single entry visa when you apply for a visa at the port of entry, allowing you to stay in the nation for 30 days.

However, you must apply for a longer-term visa at the Jordanian Embassy if you intend to stay in the nation for a longer period of time.

Jordan visa on arrival extension

You can extend your Jordan visa on arrival validity by registering yourself at a Jordanian police station before the expiration of your visa on arrival. You could get an extension of up to 60 days upon registration.

Jordan Pass

If you want to stay in Jordan for longer than three nights and visit multiple tourist sites, you can apply for the Jordan Pass. The Jordan Pass will allow you to save on entrance fees because it removes the requirement of having to pay admission fees at popular sites like the city of Petra.
