Entry & Exit Jordan
Airports: Jordan has three airports and the most visitors arrive via Queen Alia International Airport (QAIA), 30 minutes distant from Amman city. East of Amman, Marka Airport mainly serves as a regional airport. North of Aqaba, King Hussein International Airport (KHIA) is located, approximately a 45 minutes flight from Amman.
Border Crossings: Jordan shares borders with Israel and the Palestine Territories in the west, Syria in the north, Iraq and Saudi Arabia in the north and south.
Between Syria – Jordan, you can cross two borders Jaber or Ramtha. Jaber is 80 kms away from Amman and more popular for visitors.
Three border crossings are existing between Israel/Palestine – Jordan:
The Allenby/King Hussein Bridge,)It is not possible to obtain here a visa to Jordan. ( 57 kms away from Amman(, is open
The Sheikh Hussein Crossing/Jordan River Terminal in the north, 90 kms away from Amman, is open Sun – Thu: 06:30 – 21:00, Fri-Sat: 08:00 – 20:00. It is closed on Yom Kippur and the Islamic New Year.
The Wadi Araba Crossing/South Border, 7 kms away from Aqaba, operates Sun – Thu 06:30 – 20:00 and Fri – Sat 08:00 – 20:00. Wadi Araba Crossing closes on Islamic New Year and Yom Kippur.
No land border connects Egypt – Jordan, but between the two countries daily ferries are operating. There is the boat service from Nuweibah to Aqaba Port, and another from Taba to Aqaba.
The border between Iraq – Jordan is called Al Karamah Border Crossing, 331 kms away from Amman. There are three border crossings Saudi Arabia – Jordan, open 24/7 throughout the year: Umari and Mudawara Border as well as the Durra Crossing, close to Aqaba
