Students enrolled in the field school are expected to arrive on July 5, 2018 at Queen ‘Aliya
International Airport (Amman Jordan) where they will be met by project staff. Please email your travel itinerary to the field school director (email@example.com) as soon as it is confirmed. Students who arrive outside of the agreed arrival “window” will need to take a taxi to our base beside the Madaba Archaeological Museum (in Madaba). The airport taxi stand is immediately outside of the arrivals gate and the 30-minute trip to Madaba has a fixed price regulated by the government (22 Jordanian Dinar at the time of writing).
The director’s Jordanian cell/mobile number will be provided to all students nearer your departure date. Use that number and/or the director’s email address to make contact with the team if you miss your flight, are delayed or are scheduled to arrive outside of the arrival “window” on July 5, 2018.
All U.S., Canadian and EU citizens will require both a single entry tourist visa for Jordan and a passport valid for at least 6 months from the date that the visa is issued. This will be arranged on your behalf by the project. (see more details in syllabus)
In addition to the tourist visa, all foreign participants on archaeological excavations in Jordan must be reviewed by the government. This involves submitting your passport information, a photograph and some basic personal information (address, occupation, previous experience etc) at least three months prior to the beginning of the excavation permit. For DEDP 2016 this means no later than April 2, 2018. Once you have been accepted onto the 2016 DEDP Field School Dr. Routledge will contact you to collect this information.
