The Jordanian Dinar is pegged to the US Dollar so the rate fluctuates in-line with the US Dollar accordingly.
Changing money in Jordan can be a hit and miss affair. Hotels may refuse to exchange money for non-residents, and banks do not like older or worn US Dollar notes – but can offer slightly better rates than the licensed money traders found dotted around the towns. You can exchange US Dollars, Pounds and Euros into Dinars in Jordan, and the rate you get varies with the best rates for the Dollars, then the Pounds and the worst for the Euro. Do not attempt to change Australian or New Zealand Dollars as these will almost certainly not be accepted. ATMs are available at Queen Ali airport and a few can be found in Amman.
Jordan is not particularly expensive for UK visitors. A 500 ml bottle of water will cost you about 50p and a coffee (cappuccino) about £2.50.

You will need a visa to enter Jordan which you can obtain upon entry to the country or in advance from the Embassy of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in London. Single entry visas are valid for a duration of up to one month but this can be extended to up to six months whilst in Jordan. Note if you are planning on visiting Israel and the Palestine Territories it is usually easier to get a multiple-entry visa from the Jordanian Embassy before you travel.
If you plan to stay in Jordan for more than 30 days either as a resident or long-term visitor you will need to undergo a HIV test which costs around 20 JOD.
