Do not book a direct ticket from the US to Jordan. That is very expensive.

Book a ticket from the US to Brussels. Brussels is the capital of the country Belgium (Europe). And then a ticket from Brussels to Amman.

Amman is the capital city of the country Jordan.

That is way cheaper!

VERY IMPORTANT TIP FOR

NON-AMERICANS


Do not extend your visa on the last day. Do it at least 3 days ahead of time.

Because sometimes the visa offices are closed due to Islamic feastdays or other reasons. So make sure you are ahead of time.


If you are too late you with extending your visa, because the office was closed, you become an illegal visitor in Jordan and then you can be deported out of the country, if the police catches you.


There are random police controls in the public transportation busses, touringcars, and in taxi's on the highway. They will check your passport and they are able to detain you and deport you, if you are an illegal visitor.

Once you are in Jordan ....


After you leave the Jordan airport you might have to stay 1 or 2 days in Amman in a hotel.


Travel to Southern Jordan as soon as possible.

Do not settle in Amman. Amman is a very expensive city.

Do not waist money in Amman on apartments/hotels.

Do not take apartment contracts in Amman longer than 6 months maximum;

you need to stay flexible and free.

Do not easily sign apartment contracts: there are landlords in Jordan that exploit our people and make them pay even when they can't pay anymore. They treaten to send them to Jordan jail or block them from entering the country.


Do not give people a copy of your passport

(not even Hebrew Israelite brothers or sisters)


Only give a copy of your passport for business purposes like, appartment contracts or telephone contracts, etc.


Use your Hebrew name with the Hebrews and your passport name when you do business with locals. If you are not doing business, let the locals call you by a nickname. Keep it separated (wisdom).
