Jordan Visa Information

A passport with a validity of at least six months and a visa are required.  Jordan issues visas to U.S. citizens for a fee at most international ports of entry and at most international land border crossings upon arrival. The visa currently costs $67.50 USD for a single entry, $97.50 USD for two entries, and $187.50 USD for a multiple entry. Pre-approval is not necessary for U.S. citizens. If crossing at the King Hussein/Allenby Bridge, you should obtain the visa in advance from the Jordanian Embassy. U.S. citizens who depart Jordan via the King Hussein/Allenby Bridge may return to Jordan through the same bridge without a new visa as long as the current visa is still valid. An exit fee of 10 JD ($14.30) is assessed to all visitors departing through the Allenby Bridge. If crossing via Wadi Araba Border (Aqaba) no visa is required in advanced. Unless you have a Jordan Pass and intend to stay in Jordan for three nights or more, you will be asked to pay your visa fees upon exiting Jordan.

U.S. citizens are typically given visas that are valid for 30 days.  Foreigners who wish to stay longer than the time limit given to them by Jordanian immigration upon entry into Jordan must register at a Jordanian police station before expiration of that time limit.  Travelers who fail to properly register subject themselves to a fine of 1.5 JD (approximately $2.25 USD) per day beyond their permitted length of stay.  This fine is usually assessed at departure.

If traveling to Jordan for business, a letter from your employer stating the purpose of your trip is required. Requesting a visa through the Embassy in D.C. takes approximately 5 business days to process and must be paid for by money order.
