Jordan Immigration

Having looked at package holidays to Jordan and finding them expensive, I've decided to book flights and hotels myself. I see most hotels will arrange trips to places of interest (Petra, Dead Sea etc) which is great, and they also offer help with immigration.

Why? Is immigration more complicated in Jordan than (say) Tunisia or Morocco? What do I need to know or have with me? Do I need a visa from UK?

I am a lone female, so advice would be appreciated.

for a UK passport holder,, obtaining a visa upon arrival in Jordan, is straight forward and easy.

all you need is 20JOD's in cash to pay for the visa.

It's not, don't worry, if I remember right you can even get cash for the visa before immigration, no need to hunt JOD's in GB.

Yep, the bank bureau d'exchange is just as you get to the visa place. Immigration is straightforward and you shouldn't find any problems.

you are right,, there is no need to exchange your currency into JoD's prior to your trip.

as mentioned by the last poster, it can be done at the airport,, but change enough to cover your visa cost, and nothing else. The exchange rate at the airport is dismal......

Does Jordan use a full page visa? Or is it just tax collection? Thx!
