Visa & passport

Your passport should be at least another 6 months valid when you arrive in Jordan.

To visit Jordan you also need a visa, for which you can apply at the Jordan embassy in your own country or on arrival at Amman Airport or the border.


Compare car rent

If you know which places you are going to visit, you can find out online if and where there are ATM's that you can use with MasterCard and Cirrus or Visa


The language of Jordan is Arabic. It's probably wise (and fun!) to bring a phrase book to be able to utter at least some polite phrases in Arabic
