Weather of Arabia - This year, the Jordanian passport has made remarkable progress in its strength among global passports, as according to the "Henley Passport" index, it allows holders to travel to 52 countries without a visa, after it was only 49 countries in 2019 (before Corona) .
And when we talk about countries that Jordanians can enter without a visa, they are divided into two categories:
1. The category of countries Jordanians do not need a visa to enter, which are 21 countries.
2. The category of countries that require a visa from Jordanians after arriving in their territories, which are 31 countries. These countries remain classified as countries that do not require a visa for Jordanians, because obtaining a prior visa requires procedures that may be long or even arduous compared to the visa after arrival.

The post-arrival visa is a visa that the traveler must obtain after arriving at his destination, as he must obtain it from the airport, port or border crossings. It is a simple procedure that takes place within a few minutes, and includes filling out a form in which the traveler provides some personal information about him and explains the purpose of his travel to this country, the duration of his stay and place of residence … etc.
There are some airlines that provide their passengers on the plane with a visa form, so that they can fill it out and submit it to the immigration officer after arrival to avoid wasting time.
As for obtaining the classic visa, it requires the person to book an appointment at the embassy, consulate, or visa processing centers and to prepare the application file, which must include several documents and documents, pay fees and other complex procedures that make it a tedious and stressful process psychologically, physically and financially.
