Passport has to be valid for at least another 6 months.
You need a visa, but you can get the visa on arrival at the border in Jordan.
When arriving in Aqaba you are issued a special 30 day visa, since Aqaba
is a 'Free-trade-zone'. This visa is special in that in can only be extended
in Aqaba. So if you plan on arriving in Aqaba and want to stay longer than
30 days get a visa before you come to Aqaba at a Jordanian embassy.
They make you pay insurance for the length of your stay.
We bought insurance for 30 days which cost us 21.50JD per bike.
Did not get checked, but I am sure that officially you are
required to have one.
You need a carnet de passage to bring a vehicle into Jordan.
Own licence plates are sufficient.
How it went
While on the ferry a Jordanian Immigration Officer came
by and collected our passports. We were handed a receipt and told to collect
the passport at Immigration upon arrival, make sure you tell them you
want it for 30 days, otherwise you will get a 10 day visa.
On boarding our bikes got put on the second floor of the ferry, where
as all the trucks got loaded on the first floor. So in Aqaba we had to
wait for all the trucks to get off, before we could disembark. Therefore
it was already pretty late and I got the impression, that the people processing
our papers, just wanted to have us out of there, so that they could get
home. The Customs officer told us we had to go Immigration on the Second
floor. On the Second floor they didn't really know what to do with us,
but eventually they found the person with our passports which had already
gotten stamped with a 30 day visa.
Then we had to buy insurance, which was 21.5 JD per bike and pay 11 JD
processing/entry fee for each bike. We were handed a receipt for the insurance
and a vehicle registration card. The carnet got stamped and we were free
to enter Jordan.
Point of Exit
North of Irbid to Dera in (Syria)
How it went
We got to the border and the officer who stopped us took
quite an interest in me (cecilia). After some heavy flirting we were allowed
to proceed to the immigration office. The instructions for leaving the
country were printed in English on a notice board:
1. Pay departure tax 5 JD per person
2. Get passport stamped
3. Pay exit tax for vehicle (5 JD)
4. Get carnet stamped
5. Proceed to gate
And that is exactly what we did. No problem at all.
are the details of the border crossing into this particular country.
The information is correct as of the date on which the border was
crossed. But, due to the stability and vagaries of the regimes involved,
it is prudent that you get additional data directly from the embassy
involved, preferably in your own country. Also you should keep in
mind that the procedure can vary depending on exactly who is on duty.
So never assume anything is a particular way, and regardless of what
anyone says, the impossible is often possible if you are in the right
place at the right time. Good Luck.
