Jordan Travel FAQs
- How many days do I need in Jordan?
The length of time depends on the breadth and depth of your visit to Jordan. A week is suitable for you to explore the highlights in Jordan, during when you can set foot in major cities or sites like Amman, Jerash, Petra, Wadi Rum, and the Dead Sea. But is you prefer an in-depth tour, 10 days or more would be better.

- How can I obtain my visa to Jordan?
Most people will need a visa to travel to Jordan. Those from up to 140 countries such as America, Britain, Canada, Australia, etc. are able to obtain a Jordan visa on arrival (single entry and stay up to 30 days).
Documents required for visa on arrival:

- Is it a common practice to give tips in Jordan?
Yes, actually tipping is not mandatory but highly appreciated in Jordan. Commonly, you should tip around 10% of the bill to the waiter at the restaurant, USD 5-10 per traveler per day to the guide, USD 6-8 per traveler per day to the driver. However, you may pay more or less depending on their services.
- Is it common to use credit cards in Jordan?
Visa and Master Card are widely accepted in Jordan at restaurants, hotels and large shops. But small shops and souks usually prefer cash payments in Jordanian Dinars, so it is advisable to carry some cash for paying snacks, beverages and souvenirs.
- Is there any special advice for women travelers while visiting Jordan?
Blending in the local culture as much as possible is the best practice. While traveling with us, you are guaranteed a hassle-free time with a personal guide and driver. For your own leisure time, it is suggested:
1. Avoid walking alone at night, either in the city or beach.
2. Out of respect for local culture and to ward off unwanted attention, avoid wearing very tight and revealing clothes.
3. Don't wear glittering jewelry out on the street.
4. Always keep your valuables with you.
5. When you're in a bar, keep your eyes on your drinks and don't accept any drinks from strangers.
- Can I take pictures of the people, streets during my tour?
It would be better to ask for permission before taking photos of the locals. As in many places in the world, photographing government and military bases in Jordan is banned.
- How should I dress in Jordan?
Just like other Muslim countries, the general dress rule both for men and women is to keep shoulders, arms, and legs covered. Wearing trousers and long sleeves also help to prevent visitors from insect bites and sunburn. Besides, women are required to cover their hair when visiting a mosque or religious places. A headscarf is good to be prepared for any sights. Not only does this follow local customs, but it also shows that you care about Jordanian culture and local people will respect you for doing so.
