Jordan & Israel Visas




A visa is required for most nationalities visiting Jordan. Visas for UK, EU, AUS, NZ, CAN and USA passport holders can be obtained upon arrival at Amman International Airport, where the cost is currently 40JD/USD$57/Euro 42 for single entry. If arriving to Jordan via Aqaba Seaport (the port of entry if you are crossing by ferry from Egypt) and are of the above nationalities a visa is issued free of charge. i.e. you do not need to arrange a Jordan visa in advance.


South African passport holders do not currently require a visa to enter Jordan. 


It is no longer possible to get a multiple entry visa for Jordan. If planning to leave Jordan and travel to Egypt or Israel and reenter Jordan at a later date you will need to purchase a second visa, which will be easily obtainable at the border.


On departure (via land or sea), a 5 - 8JD departure tax of is applied to all visitors. If departing Jordan by air then the departure tax is included in the airfare. 


Please be advised visa requirements are subject to change, therefore it is essential that you check current visa requirements with the embassy before travel. Visa procurement is solely the responsibility of the traveller and not of On The Go Tours.

British, South African, Australian, New Zealand, USA and Canadian citizens do not require a visa to enter Israel.


For all other nationalities please consult Israeli embassy website:


IMPORTANT NOTE: If you do not want your passport stamped by Israeli Immigration, it is sometimes possible at land borders (not airports) for a visa card to be stamped instead. Most Middle Eastern countries do not take issue with passports containing Israeli stamps i.e. Egypt, Jordan, United Arab Emirates or Turkey. A few do. Should you wish for your passport NOT to contain evidence of having travelled to Israel, have your Jordanian exit and re-entry stamps, stamped upon a separate piece of paper, which Jordanian officials are willing to do. Then upon entering/departing Israel politely specify, 'NO STAMP PLEASE' and request a visa card.


The border crossing is at the King Hussein/Allenby Bridge where you will have to pay a Jordanian exit tax of approx USD$8 per person. A private transfer will pick you up from your hotel in Amman or Madaba and take you to the border crossing but you must cross over the border in a public shuttle bus which costs approx USD$3. An Israeli driver will be there to meet you on the other side of the border, for a private transfer to your hotel in Jerusalem.


Upon exiting Israel and returning to Jordan you will need to pay an Israeli exit tax, approximately $USD50 per person. You will not have to purchase another Jordanian entry visa upon arrival as your original tourist visa is still valid.


Please be advised visa requirements are subject to change. Visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not of On The Go Tours.
