Below are some of the most common questions from our travelers.
U.S. citizens must have a passport, which should contain at least 2 blank pages and be valid for at least six months after your return date. Passports expiring before then should be renewed as soon as possible.
Many countries also require a travel visa for entry. Some countries issue visas upon arrival, but in most cases, you need to obtain visas prior to travel. Airlines and cruises may deny boarding and your tour may be disrupted if your visa is not in order.
For U.S. citizens booked on a tour or package with Scheduled Dates, we will send you complete visa instructions and application forms after you book.
If you hold a passport from another country, or are not booked on a tour with Scheduled Dates, you are responsible for obtaining your own visa and meeting all entry requirements. If a visa is required, we recommend using a fee-based visa service, such as our preferred provider VisaHQ.
In Jordan, the months of May and October are the most pleasant, with temperatures ranging in the 70’s and 80’s during the day and from the mid 50’s through the 60’s at night. During the rest of the year, the temperatures vary from a daytime high in the 40’s through the 60’s to lows at night from the 30’s through the 50’s. Typically, some rain can fall during the December through February period, while May through October is virtually rain free. The contrast between night and day is dramatic, so take a sweater for chilly nights, even in summer.
