Home to a UNESCO World Heritage and a Wonder of the World, one of Jordan’s pride, is the ancient city of Petra.

Filipinos can visit Jordan with a Jordan Tourist Visa. Though there’s a consulate in Manila, it may take a month to process as the processing is at the Embassy of Jordan in Tokyo. Approval, however, is based on the Ministry of Interior in Amman. Here’s a guide on how to get your Jordan Tourist Visa.

Fun Facts About Jordan

  • Jordan is not a Jewish or Christian Country but is an Arab Nation
  • Hashemite means the house of Hashim; they are the royal family of Jordan. The current King is King Abdullah II, who is a member of that Hashemite dynasty.
  • Black Iris is Jordan’s national flower. It is a rare flower that grows in the Middle East, especially Jordan.
  • Jordan, unlike most countries in the Middle East, does not produce oil.
  • Lawrence of Arabia was a real man and fought his battles in a part of Jordan. There are also scenes of Lawrence of Arabia filmed in a desert in Jordan.
  • The Ancient City of Petra is one of the best destinations in Jordan. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1985
  • There are 5 UNESCO Heritage sites in Jordan, and 15 are on the tentative list.
  • Many Arab countries are members of the Arab Boycott League due to the Israel-Palestine conflict. Jordan has made peace with Israel so you can cross there through their land borders. Be careful, however, as some Arab nations may deny you entry if they see an exit or entry stamp from Jordan to Israel.
  • Don’t eat or drink with your left hand; it is considered not polite there
  • In the Jordan Valley is where Jesus of Nazareth was baptized by John the Baptist. The place is called Bethany beyond the Jordan or Al-Maghtas.
