Visa requirements are often one of the biggest concerns people have when they are planning a vacation, and the same is true when it comes to booking Jordan tours from Canada. Fortunately, traveling to Jordan from Canada is far easier than what most people would imagine, so let’s go ahead and take a look at what Jordan’s requirements are as far as visas are concerned.
Visa Requirements for Jordan Tours from Canada
Jordanian visa requirements for people traveling on a Canadian passport are very simple and easy to understand. If you are traveling with a Canadian passport, then your passport is the only documentation you require in order to obtain a visa on arrival when you get to Jordan. A Visa on Arrival is a single entry visa which is valid for a period of up to 30 days and costs 40 JD. If you intend visiting other countries while you are in Jordan, such as Egypt or Israel for example, and then returning to Jordan, it is highly recommended that you apply for a multiple entry visa before you travel to Jordan.
If you visit your nearest Jordanian embassy or consulate office you will be able to obtain a 90-day multiple-entry visa or even a 6-month multiple-entry visa. It is also usually possible for Canadian passport holders to extend any Jordanian visa they have while they are in Jordan simply by going and registering at a police station.
People who are booking Jordan tours from Canada but who are not in possession of a Canadian passport should contact their nearest Jordanian embassy or consulate office in order to determine whether or not they can also obtain a Visa on Arrival when they get to Jordan. The citizens of more than 120 different countries are able to apply for a Visa on Arrival when they get to Jordan. If you are from North America, Europe, Australia, South America, or New Zealand, then you will almost certainly be able to get a Visa on Arrival in Jordan.
It is however worth noting that at the time of this post being written, it was not possible to obtain a Visa on Arrival at the Wadi Araba border crossing. Visa on Arrival is only obtainable at Queen Alia International Airport, Aqaba Airport, and at the King Hussein Border Crossing.
Supporting Documents for a Jordanian Visa
If you are from the USA, the UK, Australia, Canada, or any of the EU member states then you will only be required to show your passport in order to obtain a Jordanian visa. The citizens of most other countries who are illegible for a Visa on Arrival will also be asked to show a return ticket or some other form of proof of an onward journey.
Citizens of countries who are not able to obtain a Visa on Arrival in Jordan may have to show other supporting documentation when applying for a visa, including things such as a bank statement, a letter from their employer, a copy of their tour itinerary and etc.
most people who book Jordan tours from Canada really don’t need to be very concerned about visa requirements, but of course, if you are uncertain as to what requirements are necessary 4 people such as yourself, then it is always better to discuss this with your preferred Middle East tour operator or your nearest Jordanian embassy or consulate office.

Jordan has introduced what is known as a Jordan Pass which visitors can purchase prior to traveling to Jordan in order to enjoy a number of perks, including the waiving of entry visa fees. A Jordan Pass will give you free access to some of the top Jordan tourist attractions, including the Rose-Red City of Petra, along with more than 40 others.
