What Is the Jordan Pass, Why Do You Need It, and the 3 Different Pass Options

The Jordan Pass gives you access to 40 attractions in Jordan. Many countries offer such passes, but usually, it takes a while to recover the costs. However, the Jordan Pass is an excellent deal that will most likely save you a lot of money. In this article, you’ll learn how it works, where to buy it, and the different options available.

Why is the Jordan Pass such a great deal?

When you visit Jordan, two things are almost certain: you need a visa, and you’re going to visit Petra. You can obtain a visa upon arrival at the airport, and you don’t need to arrange anything in advance. The cost of the visa is 40 JD (approximately $45), but with the Jordan Pass, you don’t have to pay anything for it. The entrance fee for one day in Petra is 50 JD (approximately $56). With the Jordan Pass, both the visa and Petra entrance fee are included, and the Jordan Pass itself costs only 70 JD (approximately $78). So, if you were to visit Petra alone, you would already save 20 JD (approximately $22). Moreover, you’ll likely visit Wadi Rum, Jerash, and other attractions, all of which are included in the Jordan Pass. In short, it’s a fantastic deal!

Additional advantage: With the Jordan Pass, you often don’t have to wait in line to buy a ticket.

When purchasing the Jordan Pass, you can choose from three different options. The only difference is the number of days the Petra entrance is included.

The Fine Print of the Jordan Pass

Naturally, there are always a few conditions and rules associated with such a pass. The Jordan Pass is valid for 12 months after ordering and can be used for two weeks after it has been scanned at the first attraction. Additionally, you must always be able to present your passport when entering an attraction. Lastly, you can only purchase the Jordan Pass if you stay in Jordan for a minimum of three nights.
