From the cosmopolitan city of Amman and the ruins of Petra, to the extremes of the Wadi Rum desert or the intense blue waters of the salty Dead Sea, Jordan is a land of contrasts just waiting for you to explore it. And while you do, you may find it handy to have some Jordanian dinars on you so you can enjoy all of it.
Once you arrive it is a good idea to try to break up any larger notes down into smaller denominations, as it can be hard to pay for things with large banknotes. You will also find that foreign cash is not accepted as payment, so you will need to get local currency.
The dinar is divided into 10 dirham, 100 qirsh (also called piasters) or 1,000 fils, which is why there are so many different coins in circulation. Please note, the Israeli New Shekel is not allowed to be imported into Jordan, and any other foreign currency must be declared. You can only take up to JOD 300 out of Jordan when you leave.
