Bali Departure tax, also known as Bali Airport Tax, was a fee that was charged for travellers leaving the island through Denpasar International Airport.
The fee was payable by everyone departing Bali from the airport, locals and foreigners alike. Kids below two years of age were exempted from this tax, unless they were set to take up their own seat on the plane.
Bali Departure Tax for leaving Indonesia – How much is the cost?
Effective from February 2015, all airlines will include the passenger service charge (PSC) in the ticket price. This means that you no longer have to line up to pay the 200,000 IDR departure tax to immigration when leaving.
This is a big win for travellers, as you no longer need to factor in extra time to make your departure time, nor do you have to keep any Indonesian Currency on you at the time of departure.
The Government is making an effort to streamline the process of visitors coming and going from Ngurah Rai International Airport which is one of the reasons that Bali is such a great travel destination for all travellers.
