Entry requirements

Visas
You need an entry visa to Jordan. You can obtain single entry visas, valid for one month, on arrival at any port of entry, except for the King Hussein Bridge at the Jordan/Israel border. A single entry visa costs 10 Jordanian Dinars.
If you wish to visit Israel and the Palestinian Authority during your visit, it is better to obtain a multiple entry visa before departure from the Embassy of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in London.
If you would like a multiple entry visa you can only apply for this at Jordanian diplomatic missions abroad.
You can extend your visa up to three months at any police station after your arrival. You are allowed to extend your stay in Jordan for a maximum period of six months. If you do not extend the validity of your visa, and stay in Jordan after your visa expires you will be fined 1.5 Jordanian Dinars for each day you overstay.

Passport Validity
You need a valid passport to enter Jordan and it should have at least 6 months' validity remaining.

Travelling with Children
Single parents or other adults travelling alone with children should be aware that some countries require documentary evidence of parental responsibility before allowing lone parents to enter the country or, in some cases, before permitting the children to leave the country. For further information on exactly what will be required at immigration please contact the Embassy of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in London.

HIV Test
You must undergo an HIV test if you intend to stay in Jordan for more than three months, either as a resident or as a long-term visitor.

Dual nationals
If you are a British/Jordanian national, you are allowed to use your British passport on arrival, but will need to show your Jordanian passport on departure.
