Border crossing via Allenby/King Hussein Bridge


I'm holding Hong Kong SAR passport. I'm planning to cross border from Jordan to Israel and return to Jordan within 14 days, via Allenby/King Hussein Bridge. Can anyone advise me on below questions please?

1) Can you confirm if visa is not required from both Jordan and Israel?

2) What time should I arrive to the border? For both departure and return. Do I need to arrive before border opens?

3) Is there any forms that I need to fill in in advance? And anything that I should be aware of?

Many thanks!!

Welcome to the Israeli forum. Regarding visa to Jordan please check with Jordan forum.For Israel no visa is required (see Israel embassy in Australia web site http://embassies.gov.il/canberra/ConsularServices/Pages/Visa-Information.aspx)

Allenby bridge is notorious for long lines thus you should plan accordingly. For more details check the official site www.iaa.gov.il/Rashat/en-US/Borders/Alenbi/.

Additionally, while you will receive a tourist visa from Israel at entry and there are no forms you need to take care of in advance. - in order to enter Jordan ath the Allenby Bridge you need to arrange for a visa in advance.

Note: If you cross from Jordan to Israel at the Allenby/King Hussein bridge (as per your original post), your Jordanian visa is not considered used/expired. Thus, you may still reenter Jordan with the same visa at this border.

If you use this border to enter Jordan for the first time, then you must indeed prearrange your visa to Jordan, as Jordan visas are not issued at Allenby/King Hussein border. Cheers!
