Student Visa and Embassy Information
Students who are U.S. citizens must apply for a visa through the Jordanian Government upon arrival in Jordan. Students who are not U.S. citizens should contact their Jordanian Consulate immediately to inquire about any specific admission/visa requirements. Rules and regulations for student visas are constantly changing and each Jordanian Consulate in the U.S. functions independently and makes its own rules, deadlines and policies.
Students must have a passport that is valid for at least 6 months AFTER their expected departure date from Jordan.You will be required to obtain an initial 30-day visa at your point of entry into Jordan (airport or land border crossing). Within the first 30 days of arrival in Jordan, you will need to to extend your visa. The ISA Amman staff will assist you throughout the visa extension process.
An HIV test is required for any student who is applying for a year-long visa. Typically every student will only extend their 3-month visa for an additional 3 months. For the temporary 3-month visa, students of American and European nationalities are NOT required to do an HIV test. Students of non-American or non-European nationalities will need to take an HIV test.
