Jordan River crossing - departure tax & costs

My guide book is out of date and I just did a search of this forum. There's up to date exit tax info for Allenby, but not for Jordan River crossing.

Please would somebody confirm or update whether this still is NIS 103 per person?

Also, how much is the shuttle bus - both passenger and luggage price?

Once again, I'm extremely grateful for the great responses from the regulars and DEs on this forum to all my queries.

I haven't used this crossing but found this. It is from August 2012 which is pretty up to date. They say 103NIS exit tax and at this crossing you can either take the bus or walk across the bridge. Scroll down the page, info is after Allenby.

Departure tax was updated to 105 NIS on 1.1.2013. Actaully, the departure tax is only 100 NIS (it used to be 98 NIS) but there is a 5 NIS commission if you pay the tax at the border itself (if you pay it ahead of time - in a post office, you don't pay commission. The nearest post office that has exit tax documents is at Beit She'an).

We would love to hear your insights and experiences about Israel when you will have the time to write.
