Border Crossing Between Israel and Jordan

Border Crossing Between Israel and Jordan

Those touring the Holy Land in Israel and Jordan will likely cross country borders. Of the three border crossings—King Hussein Bridge, Wadi Araba, and Sheikh Hussein—the most popular is King Hussein Bridge (Allenby Bridge in Israel) on the Jordan River. Here’s how to navigate the border crossing experience.

From Israel to Jordan

From the terminal on the Israeli side, visitors pay an exit tax in the local currency before having passports processed at the immigration desk. A shuttle bus designated for tourists takes passengers to the border terminal on the Jordanian side, where a checked-bag fee must be paid and passports handed over to Jordanian authorities. Passports are returned to their owners inside the terminal on the Jordanian side of the bridge.

From Jordan to Israel

When crossing from Jordan to Israel, travelers must pay an exit tax in the Jordanian terminal for stays greater than two nights. Passengers exiting Jordan must hand their passports to immigration staff, who will keep them and return them on the bus across the bridge. Upon arrival at the Israeli terminal, passengers are required to pay a baggage fee for any checked luggage and hand their passports to Israeli immigration authorities. After passing through a security check, travelers can pick up their passports and an ID card, which must be kept throughout any stay in Israel.

Things to Know

  • Border-crossing procedures are known to change frequently, so check the latest updates before traveling, or choose to cross the border as part of a multi-day guided tour to Tel Aviv, Bethlehem, or Petra and Wadi Rum.

  • Israeli immigration authorities don’t typically stamp passports, but entrance stamps to Jordan will show that you arrived from Israel—ask for it on a separate paper if you are worried about having this in your passport.

  • Be sure to check whether you need an entry visa to enter either Jordan or Israel—it’s best to organize this in advance as some land borders do not issue them on arrival.
