To enter Jordan, a passport valid for six months is required by all nationals referred to in the chart above.
A single-entry visa obtained on arrival is required by all nationals referred to in the chart above to enter Jordan.
Nationals not referred to in the chart are advised to contact the embassy to check visa requirements for Jordan.
You can obtain the single-entry visa on arrival at any point of entry into Jordan, except at the Wadi Araba border crossing and the King Hussein (Allenby) Bridge on the border between Jordan and the Israeli-occupied West Bank. No Jordanian visas are issued at these crossings (apart from to Israeli tourists), and if you attempt to cross without one you will be turned back by Israeli immigration officials before departing Israel. To enter Jordan at these border crossings you must hold a Jordanian visa obtained in advance, either from a previous visit or by contacting the Jordanian Embassy in Ramat Gan (Tel Aviv).
If visiting Israel and the Palestinian National Authority it is advisable to obtain a multiple-entry visa before departure. Multiple-entry visas are only available from Jordanian embassies/consulates.
Types and cost:
Single-entry visa on arrival: JD40.
In advance: single-entry visa: £60; double-entry visa: £90; multiple-entry visa: £180. An additional fee of £7.50 applies to all visa types.
Jordan waives visa fees for those travelling in groups of five or more who stay for over two nights and use a local tour operator or a UK company which works with a Jordanian partner on the ground.
Single-entry visa on arrival: usually valid for a month.
Single-entry visa in advance: two months from the date of issue; double-entry visa: three months from the date of issue; multiple-entry visa: six months from the date of issue.
Transit passengers continuing their journey to another country within 24 hours are exempt from visa charges. Transit visas can only be issued at Jordanian airports and not at embassies or consulates.

If applying in advance, visa processing usually takes four to five working days for nationals listed in the chart above, but may take longer for other nationals. Allow up to two weeks for postal applications.
Extension of stay:
Visas may be extended to a maximum of six months by registering with a police station in Jordan.
Unlike many other countries in the Middle East, Jordan has no restrictions on entry for people whose passports hold Israeli stamps. If you have evidence of a visit to Israel in your passport, you will not be turned back at Jordanian immigration, and you will not be subject to any unusual checks or scrutiny.
