The town of Wadi Musa is located in southern Jordan. It is the main center of Jordan, with the nearest town located in Petra which is full of archaeological finds. Tourists can stay there as well because there are several hotels and restaurants.
If you want to move here, you will need to fill out the right paperwork. It's important that you follow all rules and regulations of importing your vehicle since there are strains on the relationship between the U.S and Jordan. A1 Auto Transport service knows all about the rules and regulations and they can help you get your vehicle shipped.
When shipping to Jordan, you have two shipping methods to choose from; Roll On/ Roll Off and container shipping. You can decide what method works best for you based on your personal preference and your budget. The Roll On/ Roll Off method is more affordable because you are only charged for the space that your vehicle takes up. Your vehicle will be harnessed on the deck of the ship after it is driven on. When the ship reaches its destination, it will be driven off. You will need to have all personal items out of your car before it can be shipped. You will only be able to have the case tank a quarter of the way full, your car mats, spare tire, and a set of keys. You will need to steam clean your vehicle so Jordan Customs will not have to quarantine it once it arrives.
The container method provides a 20 or 40 foot container for your car to be placed in along with some personal items if you choose to send them. Although the same procedures need to be followed about cleaning and emptying the vehicle, you are allowed to ship your household goods or personal items within the same container along with the vehicle.
Requirements for shipment.

- Driver's License.
