From 1 January 2016, Jordan will be charged to Israeli citizens wishing to enter the territory of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan through the Erez crossing «arava» (the terminal name of Yitzhak Rabin) visa fee in the amount of $ 60.
In addition, the visa is no longer issued at the border and would require preliminary treatment at least two weeks before the trip.
The Israeli foreign Ministry called the decision of the authorities in Amman regrettable and stressed that the tightening of the visa regime harms the relations between the two countries.
CAT «arava» is located 3 kilometers North of Eilat and Aqaba, and is often used in Eilat Israelis and tourists wishing to visit for a while Jordan.
At the moment there are negotiations with Amman to free from payment of visa fee citizens of Israel (within the framework of a peace Treaty between the countries).
