Well, not exactly scrapped. In fact the fee has been raised to $37.50. However, the booth has closed and you don't need cash any more. The fee is on your airline ticket now.

Bentleybabe hi,

If it was an individual who told you this they are grossly mistaken.

If it was a travel agency they are either lying to their back teeth or they are so incompetent that I would question their ability to book your vacation properly.

The Antiguan Government now charges the Airlines direct for the embarkation tax and they, not being renowned for their charity , are passing it straight onto you in the shape of increased fares.

Got back 3 weeks ago and no departure tax paid. We wasn't sure when we went and had the money put aside ready but the rep in resort confirmed it and she was right.
