Departure Tax

We are exiting Israel to visit Petra on the 27th of the month, returning to Israel on the 29th of the month and then departing for the US on the 31st of the month. I assume we pay the exit tax on the 27th when we cross into Jordan. Somewhere I have read that the exit tax when you depart by plane from TLV is included in the plane ticket. Is that the correct assumption? If so, we only make the cash payment for the exit to Jordan and the exit to the US is already paid. Please confirm!

This forum has been extremely helpful in learning about places to see during our visit to Israel. I appreciate all the help and will try to repay with a trip report when we return. Thanks for your help.

You pay the exit tax whenever you leave Israel. You are correct. At the land crossings you pay when you present your passport as you leave. When you depart by air, the tax is already included in the price of the plane ticket.
