    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Starting December 3, people traveling abroad will no longer have to stand in line before taking a flight to pay the Costa Rica departure tax, which is currently $29.

    From that date, the cost of this tax will be included in airfare said the vice president of the Republic, Ana Helena Chacón.

    According to Chacon, an agreement was made between the bank, airlines, Immigration and Nationality, airport management, Ministry of Finance and the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) so that tax is included in the airfare.

    The idea is to simplify procedures and free up people from needing an extra step before boarding their flight.

    Departure tax in Costa Rica must be paid by everyone each time they leave the country by air and was approved by the Regulatory Law of the Rights, published in La Gaceta No. 205 on October 24, 2002.

    The rules require that these resources will fund the budget of the Technical Board of Civil Aviation and are exclusively dedicated to the expansion and modernization of airports and airfields in the country. (Amelia Rueda)
