On Your Jordan Tour

Passport Requirements for Jordan Tours

American and Canadian citizens must have a passport that is valid for at least 6 months beyond the intended return date in order to enter and depart the country. Tourists must also provide proof of return or onward travel. Each traveler is responsible for ensuring that his/her passport is up to date. Citizens of other nationalities should check with respective authorities before departure.

Please ensure that the name on your passport matches all travel documents we have issued. If this is not the case, please contact us immediately.

Please make a photocopy of your passport’s identification page and keep it separate from your original. It’s also a good idea to leave a digital copy with someone at home. This may speed up the replacement process should you lose your passport.

Visa Requirements for Jordan Tours

Visa is required for Jordan which can be obtained upon arrival at the airport in Amman. We offer a VIP service whereby our representative will greet you as soon as you get off the airplane and will assist you in obtaining the visa. The cost is included in the trip price. When exiting the country, travelers must show proof of an entry stamp in their valid passport. You may be denied exit if this is not provided to officials.

Insurance Recommendations for Jordan Tours

Cancelation and Medical Insurance is highly recommended as it can safeguard against the expenses associated with in-country medical emergencies, lost or delayed baggage and emergency cancelation or interruption of your trip. Please ensure your policy will provide you with upfront medical coverage so that you are not responsible for a hefty medical bill. Insurance can be purchased through us.

Vaccination Requirements for Jordan Tours

Currently Required Vaccinations: None

We always recommend that you see a doctor or health-care provider who specializes in Travel Medicine. They will best determine your vaccination and medication needs based on your health and immunization history, areas of the country you will be visiting, planned activities and up-to-the-minute requirement changes.

Medication Requirements for Jordan Tours

If there are any medical items that are essential to your health, such as prescription drugs or corrective eye wear, bring duplicates and divide them between your checked bags and hand luggage. While non-prescription drugs such as aspirin are generally available, it is difficult to replace prescription items.

Recommended Items:

  • Basic medicine kit (painkillers, band-aids, antiseptic cream, etc.)
  • Digestive aids such as Imodium, Pepto-Bismol; re-hydration salts and anti-diarrhea preparations.
  • Hydrocortisone tablets or cream for allergic skin reactions and bites
  • Anti-nausea tablets if you suffer from motion sickness
  • Sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher), after-sun lotion, lip balm, wide brimmed hat, sunglasses, Insect repellent (a must)
  • Baby wipes or anti-bacterial gel

Weather, Seasons and Climate in Jordan

The Jordan Valley and the area around Aqaba is warm during winter (January-February) with chilly evenings, and extremely hot in summer (June-August). In the Eastern Desert, the winter can be bitterly cold and dry and the summer intensely hot. The central spine of hills can receive snowfall in winter and is cool in the evenings in summer. Rain falls between November and March. The best time to visit would either be in Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November).

Electricity, Phone and Internet in Jordan

Electricity in Jordan is 220 volts AC/50Hz. Round two-pin plugs are mostly used but newer buildings may have three-pin plugs. Most North American bought electronics will work with 110-230V, but be sure to check before departing in case you need a converter.

Do not use 110V outlets marked ‘FOR SHAVERS ONLY’ for anything other than an electric razor as they will not work and may even get damaged.

We advise not to bring a hair dryer as it could blow a fuse.

Phone: Roaming charges vary between carriers, but tend to be quite costly. Consult your phone provider prior to departure to discuss overseas rates and international package options.

Internet: There are plenty of internet cafes around the country. Top hotels will also provide wired internet with a few offering WiFi access.

Currency in Jordan

The Jordanian dinar is divided into 10 dirham, 100 qirsh (also called piastres) or 1000 fils. We recommend that you get local currency from your bank before you leave home or from a bank machine in-country which is much cheaper than an exchange service at the airport or in tourist areas.
