Grantley Adams Airport used to impose a departure tax of BBD$25.00 which was payable upon departure.

 The Airport Departure tax was changed in January 2007 to BBD$60.00 per person and this amount is now is paid as part of your purchased airline ticket.  No Airline should request that you pay this amount upon leaving Barbados.

 Please note several things.  

This was/is an Airport Departure tax rather than a country departure tax as the fee was/is not applicable to those passengers sailing out of Barbados from the Cruise Port.

Many airports charge this type of tax but you just don't know it as it's included in the cost of your ticket.
