The Jordan Pass for US tourists is designed to cover the visitors’ most important needs when sightseeing the country.

This document also waives off the payment of the Jordan tourist visa fee, as long as American nationals stay for at least 3 nights.

Do US Citizens Need a Visa to Enter Jordan?

American nationals are required to have a valid Jordan visa when entering the country. This travel document can be obtained by US travelers on arrival (Jordan visa on arrival) or through an embassy or consulate of Jordan in the US (traditional visa).

The Jordan Pass in not a visa, but a sightseeing tourist package that can exempt US citizens from paying the visa fee. This essentially makes the visa free, as long as the visitor stays in Jordan for a minimum of 3 nights (4 days).

US citizens must collect their Jordan visa on arrival or at a diplomatic mission, using the QR code from their Jordan Pass to avoid paying the fee.

In addition to covering the cost of a visa, the Jordan Pass also provides entry to over 40 tourist attractions, including:

  • Historical sites
  • Castles
  • Museums
  • UNESCO World Heritage Sites

This makes it a great deal for American tourists to save money on their trip.
