Visa Note

You can obtain the single-entry visa on arrival at any point of entry into Jordan, except at the Wadi Araba border crossing and the King Hussein (Allenby) Bridge on the border between Jordan and the Israeli-occupied West Bank. No Jordanian visas are issued at these crossings (apart from to Israeli tourists), and if you attempt to cross without one you will be turned back by Israeli immigration officials before departing Israel. To enter Jordan at these border crossings you must hold a Jordanian visa obtained in advance, either from a previous visit or by contacting the Jordanian Embassy in Ramat Gan (Tel Aviv).

If visiting Israel and the Palestinian National Authority it is advisable to obtain a multiple-entry visa before departure. Multiple-entry visas are only available from Jordanian embassies/consulates.
