Jordan Visa

All U.S. citizens traveling to Jordan need a Jordan visa for entry into the country. Visas are issued on arrival at many ports of entry and border crossings.

However, if you will be entering the country through a port that does not issue visas on arrival you must secure your travel visa or entry permit prior to arriving. If you do not have the appropriate travel documents, you won’t be allowed to enter the country.

According to the U.S. Department of State, visas usually allow stays of up to 30 days. If you want to stay longer, you have to register with Jordanian immigration officials after you arrive. It is very important that you leave Jordan while your visa is still valid.

If you stay in the country on an expired visa, you will be charged a fee of $2.10 for each day you overstay your visa. You must pay the fine before exiting the country.
