    no need to a visa to go to Jordon for egyptians but in case that u will travel by bus then a ferry u have to get a visit permission from any friend live there or u have to get a work contract from Jordon other wise u have to take a flight and it costs about 2100 egyptian pounds

    Hey everybody its gonna be my pleasure to join you cause i was really thinking of doing it but i was more interested to do as kind of a road trip.
    Since we aren't not gonna be able to pass through the boarders so i wont mind taking a flight to Aqba then going to Petra by bus or something.
    Ill try to get more offers and please let me tuned to your plans and try to let it be after the mid of January as i'm gonna be done with my final exams.
    Thank you.

    Sherif ezzat is totally right, a friend of mine did it and she has to go through all what he mentioned and even when her papers were all there, she faced some troubles at the borders but she made it after all :) and she had so much fun
    Private_message
    I might be interested in something like that, I am a photographer and it would be a very good change for me to take some awesome shots

    Please contact me for the details
