Tunisian government levies departure tax on foreign visitors

The Tunisian government has announced that starting in October, all non-resident foreigners will have to pay a departure tax of 30 dinars ($17) upon leaving the country.
In a statement, the tourism ministry said: “The Tunisian government announces the creation of a departure tax for non-resident foreign travelers leaving Tunisian territory, coming into force on October 1st.”

Tunisian nationals, with the exception of those living abroad and foreigners with residence permits, already pay 60 dinars each time they leave the country.

The new tax announced earlier this week was included in a complementary finance law adopted this summer as part of measures aimed at helping to bail out the state.
