Hello,

You can do this outing to Jerusalem individually/by yourself, you need to leave early (the day is too short in this time of year) you need 2, 3 hours from the border to Jerusalem, you should expect burocracy and delay for your papers/visa.

You pay 15$ exit for Jordan and when you come back you are going to pay 50$ for Israel as exit tax too.

Its easy to find transportation from the border to Jerusalem, sharing taxi about 20$ each.

You can do the Israel part through agency, its about 200-250 per person plus exit tax.

Good Luck

Hi

It's possible to visit Jerusalem in one day from Jordan through King Hussein bridge ( Allenby Bridge) and back the same bridge, it's only one hour driving from Amman to the bridge, and as Omar said in his post very easy to find the public bus to Jerusalem the city , drop off in-front of Damascus gate of Jerusalem. A driver can meet you in your way back to Jordan at the bridge at the end of the day.

Your visa to Jordan is valid for one month, you can multi-travel, you're going to pay 10.00 JOD ( paid in Local currency) departure tax in Jordanian border when you leave the country.

Enjoy

Indian passport holders must apply for an Israeli tourism visa in advance at an Israeli embassy, otherwise you would be denied entry at the border.

I would advise to visit Jerusalem for at least 2 days. Visiting 1 day - given the driving + border crossing time, you are left with very little actual time in Jerusalem.

Jeruslem in one day from Amman

6 hours travel and border crossing.

this leaves you with 4-6 hours tour of old city.to some people that is adequate.To me I would like to spend days in Jerusalem .If you do not have more days to spare.just have to do YOU CAN.

Indians can not get visa for Israel on arrival.

You can apply for visa in Amman it could take few days .this is a normal procedure

cheers

Fees and procedures - you can look at the website of the Israeli embassy in Jordan yourself: embassies.gov.il/amman/Pages/default.aspx

You might be better if securing an organized tour to Israel (part of a group with a guide) - in which case the tour organizers will take care of the visa for you.
