Your Departure Tax

Did You Purchase Departure Tax & Send Us Your Passport Information?

If you purchased your international departure tax with your itinerary and sent us the scans of your passports, we will deliver the filled out forms in your Welcome Packet, when you arrive.

To avoid losing them, put each form inside the passport that it belongs to and put the passports with the forms in a safe place.

We prefer a scan because this way we are SURE that your name and passport number is filled out correctly. Forms that have discrepancies will be rejected by security and it’s time consuming, nerve wracking and can lead to paying for the tax again!

Purchased Departure Tax But Did NOT Send Us Passport Information?

Once you arrive your first transfer guide will request the information. We will then deliver the forms at a convenient location during the course of your trip. When you get them, please be sure to store them with your passports in a safe place.

Did Not Purchase International Departure Tax?

If you did not purchase your departure tax in advance, you will need to buy it during the course of your trip or at the airport. Many hotels offer this service, check with your hotels to see if you can purchase it beforehand.

Airport Procedure with Forms in Hand

On your day of departure, when you enter the airport, go directly to the airline carrier counter. Hand your passport with your filled out departure tax form (if you provided us with the information we will have done that for you) to the security officer on duty.

Note: Even if you have already checked in for your flight online, you still need to show your passport and departure tax to the security officer at the airline counter. If you try to go straight through security you will be directed to the airline counter.
