Frequently Asked Questions

Official Languages across Jordan: Arabic is the official language of Jordan.

Currency used in Jordan: The currency of Jordan is the Jordanian Dinar.

Capital City:: The capital of Jordan is Amman.

Time Zone(s) in Jordan: Eastern European Time (EET). Jordan observes daylight saving time which means that during the summer months, it shifts to Eastern European Summer Time (EEST)

 

Jordan passport, visa, and entry requirement information for US citizens.

  • Passport: Your passport should have at least two blank pages for entry stamps. Your passport is valid for at least six months beyond the conclusion of your trip
  • Visa Requirement: A Tourist Visa is required to enter Jordan. Learn more about obtaining a visa for Jordan.
  • Entry Requirements: You can see the most up-to-date entry requirements for the destination(s) you’ll visit on tour by going to getours.com/travel-requirements-restrictions.

Jordan's weather is characterized by a Mediterranean climate in the west and a desert climate in the east. The coastal regions experience mild, rainy winters and hot, dry summers. The interior areas, including the capital city, Amman, have cold winters with occasional snowfall and hot summers. The eastern desert regions, like Wadi Rum and Petra, endure extremely hot summers and cold winters, with significant temperature fluctuations between day and night. Rainfall is generally scarce throughout the country, and Jordan is known for its arid landscapes and vast desert expanses.

On-Tour Luggage & Carry-On Bag Size Limits

Luggage: Each guest traveling may bring one suitcase no larger than 30” x 18” x 10" and weighing no more than 50 lb

Carry-On Bag: *Restricted to one piece per person, not to exceed 12” x 11” x 6”

  • *Please note: A "carry-on bag" on a tour coach is not the same as a "carry-on" for a flight. Because our coaches have large windows to enjoy the view, there is minimal space to store large items securely overhead or under the seats. A "carry-on bag" may be a soft-sided daypack, purse, backpack, tote bag, or the like. Because we value our guests' safety, small rolling suitcases or bags with telescopic handles are not permitted. In order to guarantee a smooth trip, guests are not permitted to store an additional "carry-on" bag beneath the coach with the luggage. 

So your driver and any hotel porters can safely lift and transport your suitcase throughout your vacation, we strongly recommend that you test the weight of your baggage prior to travel. You should be able to lift and comfortably transport it for short distances. 

Baggage allowances vary from airline to airline, and you should check with your chosen carrier for details prior to travel.

Packing Tips for Your Tour

Packing for a guided tour will vary depending on the duration of the trip, the time of year, and the activities planned. Here is a general packing list to help you get started:

Passport and Travel Documents: Ensure you have your passport, travel insurance, and any necessary travel documents.

Clothing:

  • Comfortable walking shoes: Comfortable walking shoes are a must for exploring various sites and cities. Also, consider packing sandals or slip-on shoes that can be easily removed when visiting religious sites that require you to take off your shoes.
  • Modest Clothing: Many places in Jordan have more conservative dress codes, especially in religious or traditional areas. Pack lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that covers your shoulders and knees to respect local customs and stay comfortable in the warm climate. Pack clothes suitable for the season. Lightweight, breathable clothing for hot weather. Long-sleeved shirts, a light jacket or sweater, and pants for protection for cooler evenings. You might consider bringing a long-sleeve UV-protective shirt or the like for protection from the sun.
  • Scarves and Shawls: For women, carrying a lightweight scarf or shawl is helpful to cover your head or shoulders when entering religious sites or more conservative areas.
  • Respectful Attire for Swimming: If you plan to swim, pack appropriate swimwear for the specific location and accommodations you'll be staying in. Some hotels may have designated areas for swimming.
  • Nice evening wear: You may wish to wear a dressier outfit if you plan on dining in an elegant restaurant, for example. Smart-casual clothes are usually acceptable for all included daytime and evening activities throughout your tour.
  • Rain Gear: Depending on the season and the countries you're visiting, it's always a good idea to pack a compact rain jacket or waterproof layer.

Sun Protection:

  • Hat (wide-brimmed and breathable or with a neck flap for extra sun protection), sunglasses and clothing with UV-protection.
  • Sunscreen with high SPF. If you're visiting any coastal areas, bring reef-safe sunscreen formulated without harmful chemicals known to be damaging to coral reefs and marine life. Traditional sunscreens often contain ingredients like oxybenzone and octinoxate, which have been found to contribute to coral bleaching and negatively impact marine ecosystems. Look for sunscreens with certifications such as "Reef Safe," "Coral Safe," or "Ocean-Friendly" to ensure they are environmentally friendly.

Medications and First Aid:

  • Any prescription medications you need. (See more below under Health & Wellness)
  • Basic first aid kit with adhesive bandages, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers, etc.

Toiletries:

  • Travel-sized toiletries, including shampoo, conditioner, soap, and toothpaste.
  • Travel towel (quick-drying and compact).
  • Hand sanitizer and wet wipes.
  • A washcloth and carry bag (often not available in hotels abroad).

Electronics:

  • A camera: You’re traveling to see extraordinary scenery and sites. So that you don't miss a single moment, bring a trustworthy camera. Check out our travel photography tips for capturing the best photos of your trips. If you feel comfortable, you can also try the camera on your phone. However, if you want to zoom in or capture moving objects, a camera might be your best bet.
  • Mobile phone.
  • Chargers for each electronic you bring.
  • Travel adapter and/or voltage converter
  • Portable power bank for charging devices on the go.
  • Small travel hair dryer (make sure you have the correct converter and adapter).

Miscellaneous:

  • Bring a small daypack or backpack for carrying essentials during excursions and outings.
  • Insect repellent.
  • Reusable water bottle. At GET, we’re all about caring for our planet, and with that in mind, we always recommend that you pack a reusable water bottle for your trip. Bringing your own reusable water bottle or asking for tap water at restaurants means you can make a difference by reducing your vacation plastic waste.
  • A small travel alarm.
  • A travel iron if you like your clothes to be pressed.
  • A travel pillow.

Optional:

  • Light sleepwear.
  • A new, blank journal to document your trip. Don't know your travel journal style? Find out here!
  • Ziplock bags (storing snacks, toiletries, and keeping things organized).

Electricity

Electricity information for travelers in the Middle East can vary from country to country. However, most Middle Eastern countries follow a standardized system for electricity. Here are some key points to know about electricity in the Middle East:

  • Voltage: Jordan has a standard voltage of 230 volts at 50 Hz. Jordan's voltage of 230 is higher than the typical 120 volts used in North America. Therefore, if you're traveling from North America, you'll need a voltage converter to use your electronic devices safely. It's essential to note that the plug types may differ in various regions of Jordan, so it's advisable to bring a universal travel adapter that can accommodate multiple plug types. 
  • Plug Types: The power plugs and sockets used in Jordan are types C, D, F, G, and J. Type C plugs have two round pins, Type D plugs have three round pins in a triangular pattern, and Type G plugs have three rectangular pins in a triangular pattern. 
  • Travel Adapters: Since plug types can vary in Jordan, it's a good idea to have a universal travel adapter that can accommodate multiple plug types. This will ensure that you can easily plug in your devices regardless of the specific plug type.
  • Availability of Outlets: The availability of electrical outlets is generally widespread in urban areas and tourist destinations in the Middle East. Most hotels, airports, and public spaces provide standard power outlets to charge your devices.
  • Power Outages: Some countries in the Middle East may experience occasional power outages, especially in more remote or less developed areas. Be prepared with portable chargers or power banks to ensure you can keep your essential devices charged during your travels.
  • Safety Considerations: When using electronic devices in a foreign country, especially with different voltage systems, ensure that your devices can handle the local voltage to avoid damage. Always check the label on your devices or chargers to see if they support 220-240 volts.

Hair Dryers in Your Hotel

Many hotels in the Middle East, especially those catering to international travelers, provide hair dryers in their rooms for guests to use. These hair dryers are usually compatible with the local voltage and plug types, so you won't typically need to worry about bringing your own unless you have specific preferences or requirements.

If you have a high-powered or specialized hair dryer that you prefer to use, or if you're staying in accommodations that might not provide hair dryers, you can bring a travel hair dryer that's designed to work with various voltage levels and plug types. This way, you'll ensure that you can use your hair dryer regardless of the specific electrical setup in the hotel.

Remember also to pack any necessary travel adapters or voltage converters if your hair dryer is not compatible with the local voltage and plug type. It's always better to be prepared to ensure a comfortable and hassle-free experience during your trip.

If you are unsure about the electrical compatibility or amenities provided by a specific hotel, you can see if they provide this information on their site or contact them directly before your trip to inquire about the availability of hair dryers and other electrical considerations for international travelers. If you need a hair dryer during your trip but cannot find one in your hotel room, you can inquire with the hotel staff. Many hotels will be able to provide a hair dryer upon request, either at the front desk or through housekeeping.

Air Conditioning

  • Air conditioning is common and widely used in Jordan, especially during the hot and dry summer. Given the warm climate in this region, air conditioning is essential for maintaining comfortable indoor temperatures. Restaurants, shopping malls, museums, and other public spaces typically have air conditioning to provide relief from the heat. It's common to find air conditioning in public transportation vehicles like buses and trains as well.
  • While air conditioning is crucial during the summer, the need for it might decrease during the cooler months. Some places may not use air conditioning during the winter or cooler evenings.
  • Keep in mind that local customs and practices might influence the use of air conditioning. In more traditional or older buildings, air conditioning might not be as prevalent as in modern structures.

Regardless of where in the world your tour visits, we do our best to ensure your transportation is as comfortable as can be. 

Airport transfers

Transfers will depend on the trip you choose and vary among destinations. In general, if you are joining or departing your guided vacation on the first or last day, return transfers between the airport and hotel are included. You’ll find specific information on your itinerary page.

To enable you to personalize your tour experience, you will find a number of Optional Experiences designed to complement the itinerary. These are designed to offer a deeper insight into the culture and character of the areas to be visited and provide some wonderful highlights to your travels. The optional program is designed to let you experience more of what interests you and to get the most from your vacation without replacing or overlapping with anything included in an itinerary.

The majority of Optional Experiences will be offered to you by your Travel Director at the beginning of your trip. Some may be subject to change, depending on the time you are traveling or local circumstances, including weather and days of the week. Your Travel Director will provide further information.

Usually, most Optional Experiences will be priced in the local currency, but please read through the details of individual optional experiences for specific information. Exact payment options will be advised locally by your Travel Director/Local Representative for each Optional Experience, but in many cases, cash, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are all accepted.

Traveling to the Middle East on a guided tour can be an exciting and enriching experience. However, it's essential to prioritize your health and safety while exploring new territories. Staying informed, prepared, and cautious will go a long way in ensuring a safe and enjoyable travel experience. Always stay in touch with your Travel Director and always follow their recommendations.

Here are some health advice and recommendations for travelers heading to the Middle East:

Visit the Doctor: Before embarking on your trip, schedule a visit with a medicine specialist or your healthcare provider. They can provide personalized health advice based on your medical history, current health status, and the specific countries you'll be visiting.

Travel Insurance: Ensure you have comprehensive travel insurance that covers medical emergencies, evacuations, and trip cancellations.

First Aid Kit: Carry a basic kit with essential items like band-aids, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers, antidiarrheal medication, and any prescribed medications. 

Sun Protection & Heat Safety: The Middle East often experiences strong sunlight. Use sunscreen with a high SPF, wear protective clothing, and use sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat to shield yourself from the sun. The Middle East can have extremely high temperatures, especially during the summer. 

Stay Hydrated: Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, avoid strenuous activities during the hottest part of the day, and rest in air-conditioned or shaded areas.

Respect Local Customs: Respect local customs and dress codes, especially in conservative areas. Dress modestly, particularly when visiting religious sites.

In order to ensure a healthy and enjoyable trip, we strongly suggest that you pack an adequate supply of your prescription medications and carry them in their original packaging, along with a copy of your prescription. Here’s what you need to know about traveling with medications.

Prior to traveling, please notify GET of any disability requiring special assistance or any specific dietary needs that you may have, and we will strive to accommodate these. 

When traveling with GET, baggage handling at hotels, service charges, and tips for hotel wait staff (for included meals) will all be taken care of by your Travel Director. There are, however, a few instances where individual tipping is welcome.

Local Specialists

It is customary to show appreciation for the insights, stories, and know-how shared with you by the Local Specialists, and we suggest a gratuity equivalent to $1.00-$2.00 USD per person per half day.

Your Coach Driver and Travel Director

The trip cost does not include gratuities for your Travel Director and Driver. At the end of your trip, you may express appreciation to your Travel Director and Driver for their excellent service and the personal attention you received. Gratuities are given at the discretion of each guest, and a suggested amount per person/per day is listed in your travel documents.

For your convenience and ease, there is an option to pre-pay gratuities for the Travel Director and Driver at the time of booking.

Hotel services

It is customary to tip hotel staff for room service delivery if the charge has not already been added to the bill. Where ice machines are not available, and you receive ice from the bar, a small tip to the bartender is always appreciated.
