Important announcement for Israelis who visit Jordan
This is an important announcement that was issued by the Jordanians on May 2nd 2019:
1. All Israelis who visit Jordan, including Israelis who just go to Aqaba, must coordinate in advance a Jordanian guide.
2. In addition, everyone who will stay at a hotel must bring with them a hotel’s invitation document for a hotel that was prepaid in advance.
Any passenger who won’t be allowed to enter to Jordan, and will be sent back to Israel by the Jordanians because of any reason, won’t get a refund for the paid border fees!
This is an official statement that was issued by the management of Itzaac Rabin terminal.
Even if you just booked a hotel in Aqaba and you don’t need a guide, you still need a Jordanian guide who will meet you at the border crossing, arrange the necessary documents and state that he is your guide.
You won’t be able to get a guide after you crossed the border to Jordan. You must arrange a Jordanian guide in advance, before crossing the border to Jordan, who will arrive to the border crossing with a copy of your passports and the necessary documents.
In case that you don’t have a Jordanian guide, you can contact us, and we will arrange for you a Jordanian guide who will meet you at the border crossing, issue all the necessary documents, help you with the border procedures and also take you to your hotel in Aqaba and back to Eilat. In addition, our representative in Eilat will meet you at the Israeli side of the border crossing, and explain to you everything that you need to know.
It’s better to arrange everything in advance. But, sometimes, we are able to arrange a Jordanian guide who will meet you at the border crossing in a short notice. So, you can call us when you are at the entrance to the Israeli side of the border crossing.
Please be aware that if you stay in Jordan for 3 nights or more, then you won’t have to pay the Jordanian departure tax.
