Israeli terminal[edit]

Transportation to and from the terminal[edit]

There is no public transportation to the terminal. Only privately owned Israeli cars may cross through the terminal and travel within Jordan after a change of license plates, registration and the payment of a tax. Rental cars may be left in the parking lot, which has a per day fee. Also private buses can cross the border (like the bus from Nazareth to Amman)

From the Jordanian terminal to the Israeli terminal, one must travel by car or bus. There is a bus that runs between the two terminals.
