However, the Allenby/King Hussein Bridge crossing and the Arava Boarder crossing do not issue visas. Visa requirements for Jordan are shown on the Jordan Tourism Board website. The entry visa to Jordan is 40 JD, and must be paid in Jordanian Dinar. There are currency exchanges and an ATM at the ports of entry. Please refer to your itinerary for questions about visas as this has already been planned for by your travel specialist. Packing for your hike: You only need to carry your daypack with you on the hikes. We will transport your overnight bags to each stop. We recommend you keep your daypack as light as possible, just to carry your water, camera and whatever else you want during the day. You will thank us later! For your overnight bag, we recommend large rucksacks, or soft duffle bags that can be locked. Blankets are provided, however, some people prefer to bring their own sleeping bag, or at least a sleeping bag liner. If bringing a sleeping bag, we recommend a 2/3 season sleeping bag. (If your trip takes place between November and March, you will need a warm sleeping bag and thermal underwear for the evenings.) Temperatures in Jordan can be hot and with little rain. In the months of November to March it can be very cool at night, particularly in the desert where night temperatures can drop to 5 degrees Celsius or less. Even in the hot months out in the desert it can sometimes get cold at night.

What is the best month to visit Jordan?
March to May are the busiest tourist months to visit Jordan. September to February is also ideal for travel due to the generally good weather, except for the biting cold nights in the desert areas. It is not advised to travel to Jordan between June and August unless you are prepared to deal with intense heat. However, the best time to visit Jordan is between March and May, when the weather is perfect, even when you want to travel to the desert.
