How long to cross the border into Jordan from Eilat

If the border closes at 8pm; what time must we be there by to make sure we get across that evening from Eilat to Jordan.

We crossed the border in May for the one day tour with Desert Eco Tours, and I think the administration time etc took at leat an hour. I would get there in plenty of time, in case of hold ups. Suggest at least 2-3 hours before closure, especially if you are doing this as an independent traveller.

Hope this helps!

We went through about 2 weeks ago, in the morning. It took us no more than 45minutes.

don't forget that you will need to pay about 8 dinars when you cross the border back into Israel. Every nationality pays a different fee. Find out what your country's rate is and have that money in your pocket all day long. If you spent all your dinars and have none left at the border, you will have to go back to Aqaba.

Hufsha, this post is almost year old. I'm sure the OP has come and gone months ago.
