Okay, let’s take a look at things such as passport and visa requirements:
Visa Requirements for Jordan Tours from Egypt
Egyptian Passport Holders – Egyptian nationals who are traveling on an Egyptian passport can enjoy Jordan tours from Egypt without any need for a visa, but visa-free entry is currently restricted to 1 month. If you expect to be in Jordan for a longer duration, you can get 3-month single or multiple entry visas, or even a 6-month multiple-entry visa, but it must be applied for at a Jordanian embassy or consulate prior to traveling to Jordan.
Passports of Other Non-Restricted Countries – At the time of writing, citizens of 120+ countries can obtain a Visa on Arrival when traveling to Jordan. These countries are typically referred to as “non-restricted” countries, and include all EU member states; Australia; New Zealand; Canada; most of North America, and most of South America, among others. Several African countries are also included in the list of non-restricted countries. Again, a Visa on Arrival will give you 30 days in Jordan, so if you intend staying longer, you will need to apply for the relevant visa before traveling to Jordan.
NOTE: It is not possible to obtain a Visa on Arrival at the Wadi Araba border crossing, although this might change at some point. Your tour operator should be able to give you up to date information regarding this when you book your tour.
Passports of Restricted Countries – The citizens of certain countries cannot obtain a Visa on Arrival and must therefore apply for a visa prior to traveling to Jordan. With this in mind, if you are not from a “developed” country, it is always best to contact your nearest Jordanian embassy or consular office for clarification regarding visa requirements pertaining to your nationality.
If you are from the USA; UK; Canada; Australia, or any one of the EU member states, you can enjoy Jordan tours from Egypt without having to produce any documentation other than your passport in order to obtain your Visa on Arrival.
On the other hand, if you are traveling on a passport issued by any other “non-restricted” country, immigration officials can demand to see proof of onward travel, and in some cases they may also ask to see your tour itinerary. However, this is generally nothing to worry about, and besides, if you are being met at the airport or other border crossing by a Jordanian tour representative, they will typically deal with all formalities on your behalf, providing you have your booked your Jordan tours from Egypt through a reputable Egypt tour operator that has a solid and well-established working relationship with a reputable tour operator in Jordan.
If you are from a country whose citizens are not eligible for a Visa on Arrival, it is crucial that you contact your nearest Jordanian embassy or consulate in order to get clarification on what additional documentation is required. Such documentation could include things like proof of onward travel; a copy of your tour itinerary; proof of employment in your own country, and proof to show that you have a stipulated amount of money to support yourself while you are in Jordan. Sometimes it is easier and more convenient to just use a visa agent in a situation like this, but be sure to choose an agent carefully or else you could get taken for a ride.
NOTE: Regardless of which country you come from, or what passport you are traveling on, if you book Jordan tours from Egypt that include a visit to Israel, you will need to obtain a multiple-entry visa unless Israel is you final destination before moving on. Multiple-Entry visas can only be obtained from Jordanian embassies and consular offices.
Exit Tax – All persons leaving Jordan are charge a 10 JD exit tax except when leaving via one of the country’s airports.
