Visiting Jordan? Here are the dos and don’ts

Planning a holiday to Jordan? The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, a place which once captivated ancient travelers, continues to enthrall a new generation with it’s eclectic mix of modernity and tradition. These handy tips will help you prepare better for your much-awaited trip.

With the Arab nation offering visa on arrival for Indian passport holders, one can apply for visa with a proof of return ticket besides a few other documents.

Dos

*It’s a good idea to keep a checklist of the documents to be submitted before applying for the visa. Also carry extra set of photocopies of all the relevant documents requested by the Jordanian embassy.

*First-time visitors need to visit embassy office in person, and they cannot request a travel agent to represent them.

*Keep checking the official websites of visa information for any changes in the rules and fees.

*Be aware of dress codes and its a good idea to carry a scarf around. Aside from coming handy on a hot day in sites like Wadi Rum or Petra, females would need a scarf when visiting a religious site, like the spectacular King Hussein Bin Talal Mosque.

Don’ts

*Avoid buying Forex at the International Airport (Departure).

*When heading back from any destination country, don’t take back the small denominations and coins.

*Avoid currency exchange at the Airport. You will get a poor conversion rate. You can convert your currency in Baht at any other exchange counters in the city.
