Sometimes it's easy, sometimes I have to go on a fact-finding mission - which I do enjoy because it helps me to discover new and interesting facts and figures about Jordan.

So, please, keep asking!

Special note about visa-related questions:
Everything I know about Jordan visa requirements are summarized here.
If you are a citizen of XYZ country and want to find out whether you can obtain Jordan visa on arrival or not, please read that page first AND contact the nearest Jordan Consulate for the latest official information.

In other words:
Please DO NOT ask visa related questions that are specific to a certain nationality as I'm not in the position of promising you anything. Thank you for your understanding.
