View Full Version : Departure Tax

Finally going back to Bonaire.
Is the departure tax now all included in plane tickets purchased after Oct 1 2010?

I remember reading about this but wanted to make sure it was no included in the plane ticket and I won't have to pay it at the airport.

Never mind :)
I found an entry on my tickets for Bonaire Passenger Facility Charge.

My last trip to Bonaire was four years ago, but I am returning in December for a two week vacation. I just bought my airline tickets, and I see the "Bonaire Passenger Facility Charge" on my receipt. Does this mean that I don't have to purchase the Departure Tax at the airport when I leave, like the "olden days"?

That is correct Amy, in fact I recall someone posting that the "Departure Tax" kiosk in the Airport is no longer there.

Thank you, ModRoy.

I'm all for anything that makes the departure process simpler. I remember paying for my Departure Tax on the day I arrived, just so I wouldn't have to hassle with another long line at the airport when it was time to leave. Now I just won't worry about it at all! :)
