Hi all,
I live in Canada, currently working in Irak rotating 28/28. I want to visit Jordan and Israel the last week of January in my way to home. My flight has a stop in Amman, that is the reason I must start my visit in Amman and come back here to take my flight to home. I dont know if i should go to Israel first via King Hussein bridge and come back to Jordan through same bridge or going to Eliat and re-entry to Jordan through south and visit Aqaba and Petra.
Should i re-entry to Jordan through same gate i out?
Can i get a Israel visa at the border (i carry a Ecuadorian passport)?
Should i ask a multiple visa in Jordan?
Taking a flight one way from Tel Aviv to Amman is quiet expensive, but i would consider this posibility if there is a problem to cross the borders.
Thanks in advance for your help.

David

If you exit Jordan through King Hussein bridge you better enter through this again.

The reason is that you do not get stamped out of Jordan at King Hussein bridge. So if you try to enter again coming from Eilat you might have some trouble.

Plus I don't know what the situation is in Iraq or what it will be in the future - thus you better hide your visit to Israel. Many muslim countries forbid people to enter their countries if they got an Israeli visa or entry stamp in their passports. Iraq might make the same decision.

The only way to hide a visit to Israel is flying to Amman and exiting Jordan by King Hussein bridge, asking Israeli officers not to stamp your passport but put the stamp or visa on a piece of paper, then travel around Israel for 2 weeks and then enter Jordan again through King Hussein bridge.

According to several websites holders of an Ecuadorian passport do not need a visa to enter Israel for the purpose of tourism, they just get an entry stamp.

Thanks for your advice.
I was reading somewhere that officially Israel does not stamp passports if it is asked, so i going to ask them not to stamp my passport. I am seriously thinking to visit Petra and Aqaba first and flight from Tel Aviv to Amman in order to take my flight to Canada.

I am seriously thinking to visit Petra and Aqaba first and flight from Tel Aviv to Amman in order to take my flight to Canada.

But if you are flying from Tel Aviv to Amman asking them not to stamp your passport is useless.

If you leave Jordan by King Hussein bridge and then fly into Amman from Tel Aviv the missing Jordanian exit stamp will be proof of where you have been even if the Israelis do not stamp your passport.

Summary of your two options:

1) Ask the Israelis not to stamp your passport. Leave Jordan at King Hussein bridge and enter Jordan at King Hussein bridge.

2) Don't care about Israeli stamp. Leave Jordan at Aqaba, go over to Eilat, fly from Tel Aviv to Amman.

Thanks for the heads up about asking the Israli's not to stamp your passport. Thanks,
