Jordan Visa

Hi! I am going (alone) to Israel this October and i'm planning to have a 1 or 2 day/s trip to Petra by land from Jerusalem.

I read that Philippine (Filipino) National needs prior visa to Jordan as per jordan tourism board website.


However, i've also read in many articles/forums that one may come to petra/jordan from Jerusalem(Israel) with out the need of visa.

<Arrivals at Aqaba, either through the port, the airport or at the crossing from Israel or Saudi Arabia, are granted a free visa to Jordan. There is no obligation associated with this visa, provided that they leave the country from the same border and within 1 month of arrival, and that they do not need to renew their visa. > source: http://www.visitjordan.com/

I understand that visa requirement is based on one's passport but i am just hoping that some people and experts here may be able to shed light. Perhaps there are also other Filipinos who experienced crossing the border from Israel

It will take about 4 or more hours to drive from Jerusalem to Elait. Let's say 1 hour to cross the boarder and then an other 2 hours to drive to Petra. Basically the whole day will be spent in travel.

It looks to me if you want to spend 2 full days in Petra you are looking at spending 3 nights there.
