Jordan Visa Information For Filipinos in GCC

2656861_orig

For Philippine passport holders, Jordan is a country that requires an immigration approval prior to travel. (Good news for GCC Residents)

I and my husband are currently arranging a visit to Jordan this  coming November 2015, and as for our case (Filipinos holding a GCC Residency), after inquiring here and there, contacting the immigration in Amman and Jordan Embassy in Qatar, it was then confirmed that we are eligible for a visa upon arrival in Amman Queen Alia Airport Jordan provided we have the following documents / requirements:

  1. Original Passport valid for at least 6 months before and after travel
  2. Valid Residence Permit (GCC) for at least 3 months before and after travel
  3. Confirmed Return Ticket 
  4. Visa Application fee of JD40

Visa can also be waived as long as you have a Jordan Local Tour Operator arranging your travel itineraries and that you will be staying inside the country for 2 or more consecutive nights.

It is also possible to apply for a Tourist Visa (2 months visa) beforehand at the Jordan Embassy if you wish to. Below are the requirements for visa application.

  1. Original Passport valid for at least 6 months before and after travel
  2. Valid Residence Permit (GCC) for at least 3 months before and after travel
  3. NOC (with Salary and Designation mentioned) from your GCC sponsor
  4. Family Certificate or Marriage contract if you are traveling as a couple
  5. Completed Visa application form (click here to view form)
  6. and a Visa Application Fee of USD81       

The above mentioned information were gathered last September 2015, Jordan Immigration Authorities might do some changes in their policies anytime. Thus, it is advise that you check and confirm from the Jordan Embassy at your country of residence the latest info prior to your travel.

You can find as well some related and supporting facts at Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airways websites (visa information page).

It will be my pleasure to help should you need clarifications and further details.

Happy trip!
