Passport to Tour guides

Hi,

Received an email from Driver that tour guides are now required to have a copy of our passport. Are there is a fine of 500 JOD. I was told to either provide a copy of my passport or give them the information from my passport. They said to avoid them having to pay a fine. I have provided my passport to hotel's. Necer to a tour guide/ driver

Hello Mishie,

That sounds a bit strange to me. First of all, in Jordan driver is not allowed to be a tour guide at the same time. Further, I arrange a lot of transfers but never provide drivers with passport copies. Maybe, other forum members know more about this and can share their information as well.

Wishing you a great time in Jordan,

Bianca Abma

Something seems not right!!

Do you have the Jordan Pass ?

Did you book your hotels on line ?

If yes .. then no need to the passport copy or info .

are you dealing with driver , tour guide or travel agent ?

The answer is there .

Wish you nice staying in Jordan.

Sometimes ..when the drivers do the pickup from the airport ,the police stop them and check if they work legally . in this case he may need your info to prepare formal document.

so if you pass your name as passport and your nationality to him.it will not be a big deal .

i regret to see that some of those whom are considered here as tour expert destination for Jordan and they just dont know about this mandatory requirement by the Jordan police..... this is standard procedures especially for airport pickup and also to show for check points when you are being stopped along the road with your driver
