Departure Tax: Can I Pay it in Samara?

hello everyone,

Happy Friday!

Would I be able to pay our Departure Tax in the Bank in Samara?

I know its $28 PP and we need our Passports..

Anything else I should know? (do they give receipt, a paper as proof?)

Thanks!!

Yes, You can pay it at the Banco de Costa Rica. One side of the receipt is th departure tax and the other side is the immigration form that you have to fill out. The airline will take the form from you when you check in.

Hi. There are two banks in Samara: Banco Nacional and Banco de Costa Rica. You can only pay it at Banco de Costa Rica which is by the soccer field. 99% of the time, there are no lines so paying this would take about 5 mins. Have fun!

Just paid our departure tax at the bank in Samara...walked in, up to the window...paid all 4 and out in about 5 mins. No line up...and incase you are visiting and didn't know (like us)...no sunglasses and no hats allowed to be worn in the bank.

Cheers!

Banco de Costa Rica almost never has a line and you can pay the departure tax there.

Have fun!
