If you have time to spare, you can apply for your visas before you travel. However, it is probably a lot easier and more convenient to obtain a Visa on Arrival in both Egypt and Jordan.
Egypt has also launched an online e-Visa service. This allows you to apply for your visa from the comfort of your living room. To use this service, you do however need to register for an account. Doing so is quick and easy, and can be done here. Once you have register, completed the visa application form and submitted payment, you application will be processed and then you will then be able to download and print your visa. At the time of writing, fees for Egypt tourist visa were:

While Jordan does not at this point offer online visas, it is easy to obtain a Single Entry 30-day Tourist Visa on arrival. These visas cost 40 JOD (about £45). Multiple Entry visas for Jordan can only be obtained from Jordanian embassies and consulates. If you are going to be spending less than one full day in Jordan, no visa is required. However, all of our Egypt and Jordan tours from UK include multiple days in Jordan.
What Visas Do We Recommend UK Visitors?
Because all of our Egypt and Jordan tours from UK are shorter than 30 days, we recommend a Single Entry e-Visa for Egypt, and a 30-day Visa on Arrival for Jordan. The only exception would be if you book a tour package that begins in Egypt and ends in Egypt. In that case, we would recommend a Multiple Entry e-Visa for Egypt.
Passport Requirements for UK Travelers to Egypt and Jordan
Both Egypt and Jordan have the same policies regarding passports. You must have at least one blank for entry into Egypt, and one blank page for Jordan. There must also be at least six months validity remaining in your passport. This is calculated based on the date on which you are scheduled to leave each country.
If you don’t have 6 months validity remaining, it is unlike that you will be granted visas for Egypt and Jordan. Even if you manage to obtain an e-Visa, if you don’t have 6 months validity remaining, immigration official have the authority to deny you entry.

For example, you can use a good quality sunscreen and a hat to protect yourself again sunburn.
Drink plenty of water to ensure that you remain adequately hydrated. We even provide our clients with free bottled water during road trips and tours. Upset stomachs can be very unpleasant and very inconvenient, but this is also easily avoidable. Most people, who pick up a stomach bug in Egypt or Jordan, actually get it from eating contaminated food from stalls and vendors in markets.
We strongly recommend that you sample some local street foods and snacks, but you should only ever buy from traders who are clearly getting a lot of local customers. If a local café or restaurant is serving many locals, it tells you that the quality is good and that the place has a good reputation.
