All Non-Arab visitors must have a visa to enter Jordan. Tourist visas are typically valid for 30 days from the date of issuance. However, tourists can apply for an extension of up to 2 months.
U.S. Citizens are required to obtain a visa to enter Jordan. However, U.S. Citizens with a valid U.S. Passport can obtain a visa on arrival. This means that you can travel to Jordan without a visa and apply for one at Amman Queen Alia International Airport.
King Hussein/Allenby Bridge
U.S. Citizens cannot obtain visas on arrival at the border crossing of the King Hussein/Allenby Bridge, linking Jordan with the Palestinian territories. You must already have a valid visa to Jordan or have a special entry permit from the Jordanian Ministry of Interior to enter Jordan at this crossing.
Diplomatic or Official passport holders may cross the King Hussein/Allenby Bridge without a visa. U.S. Citizens who depart Jordan via the King Hussein/Allenby Bridge may return to Jordan through the same bridge without a new visa as long as the current visa is still valid. An exit fee is assessed to all visitors departing through the King Hussein/Allenby Bridge. Visas can also be obtained from any Jordanian embassy or consulate ahead of travel.
The U.S. State Department strongly encourages American Citizens planning international travel to register with the U.S. Embassy in the countries they plan to visit.
