Egypt-Isreal-Jordan then back to Israel??

Hi all,

Anyone have experience with going from Taba to Eilat to Aqaba....then back again to Israel after a couple of days? I have heard that crossing back and forth with Israel with Arab stamps (or vice versa) may be tricky. Details appreciated! We will be dropped off by our egyptian guide at the taba/eilt border and need to make it to aqaba.

We did it and found it quite easy. Just got a taxi from the Eilat border to the Jordanian border. Crossed over and took another taxi into Petra. We did it this way as we were unsure how much time we wanted to spend there, so could be flexible. As it happens, we'd done it in one day so came back just before the border closed.

Had no problems at any of the borders. The only thing we did was asked the Isreali border not to stamp our passports as we were due to go on holiday to Malaysia and they won't let you in with an Israeli stamp. I was a bit embarassed asking but they were happy to oblige.

Hope this helps

You will have no problems with stamps in your passport, they might ask you a few more quentions but plenty of people do this.
