Visa Pages Elimination

Visa pages will no longer be added to U.S. passports after December 31, 2015; instead, 52-page passport books will be issued at no extra cost to U.S. citizens applying from outside the United States. Renew your passport early to make sure you have enough blank pages for visa stamps from other countries. Some require two blank pages for entry and exit. See travel.state.gov for more information on entry, exit, and foreign visa requirements.

The Embassy advises U.S. citizens to maintain valid travel documents and enroll with the Department of State through the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program. By enrolling, U.S. citizens make it easier for the Embassy to contact them in case of emergency.

The U.S. Embassy in Amman is located on Al-Umawiyyeen Street, Abdoun, P.O. Box 354. The telephone number is [962] (6) 590-6000, and the fax number is [962] (6) 592-4102. The after-hours emergency telephone number is [962] (6) 590-6500.

U.S. citizens traveling abroad regularly should monitor the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs website, where the current Worldwide CautionTravel WarningsTravel Alerts, and Country Specific Information can be found. U.S. citizens should also review the “Traveler’sChecklist” which includes valuable security information for those both living and traveling abroad.

Follow us on Twitter and the Bureau of Consular Affairs page on Facebook as well. In addition to information on the Internet, travelers may obtain up-to-date information on security conditions by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States and Canada, or outside the United States and Canada on a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays).
