Go to my Jordan visa page for information on other types of visas for Jordan.

I’ll break everything down for you below about how to get the Jordan Transit Visa.

Visa required for U.S. citizens before you go to Jordan: No. Jordan issues visas to U.S. citizens for a fee at most international ports of entry and at most international land border crossings upon arrival.

  • Visas are not issued upon arrival at the King Hussein/Allenby Bridge land border crossing.
  • U.S. citizens are typically given visas that are valid for 30 days.
  • Foreigners who wish to stay longer than the time limit given to them by Jordanian immigration upon entry into Jordan must register at a Jordanian police station before expiration of that time limit.
