Help with Transit Visa Question in AMM

Hi All,

I am arriving in AMM on RJ from LHR at 22:00 and leave at 19:00 the next day on Egyptian Air to Cairo. I already have a room booked at the Airport Hotel and a day trip to Petra. My question is do I qualify for the Zuwar (transit) visa for free? I am a US citizen.

You should have looked here! Since you only have one night planned in Jordan, it looks like you'll have to pay for your visa...

Why wouldn't this qualify for the 24 hours transit visa? I don't see it mentioned in the link that @KLouis referenced, but there are multiple references to the 24 hour transit visa online on other websites. I'm in the same boat - wondering if I will qualify for the 24 hour or will I have to buy the single entry. @talltoddtravels, let me know how it goes for you.

The link provided mentions: The visa fee is waived on the condition that the traveler/travelers spend a minimum of two consecutive nights in Jordan. OP was planning on spending one night only. As to your mentioning other sites, the one I linked to is the Jordan Tourism Board, thus it's as official as possible. I'd rather act according to that than to what's written in pther boards.
