Can I enter Jordan by Aquaba Bridge, exit by Sheikh Hussein Bridge?

I am going to visit Jordan for 5/6 nights in Sept 2012, returning to Tel-Aviv.

How much are the Jordan entry/exit fees and do I need any papers in advance for border crossings?

Answer: Yes, you can enter via Aqaba and leave Jordan via Sheikh Hussein Bridge. FYI, there is no "bridge" between Eilat and Aqaba, it's a simple land crossing with a cca. 200m "no-mans-land" in between the two checkpoints. You have to walk this distance.

If you enter at Aqaba, you will be granted a free ASEZ (Aqaba Special Economic Zone) visa which is valid for all of Jordan. No special papers needed, only your passport valid for at least six months.

At the moment Departure or Exit Tax is 5 JD for foreign nationals at the land border crossings - but it may increase by September 2012 so please reconfirm it next year.
