Passenger Movement Charge/Departure Tax
Australia's passenger movement charge - or departure tax as it is commonly called - is the equivalent of $A38 and is prepaid with your airline ticket, with payment noted on the ticket. Exemptions apply to children under 12 years of age, 24-hour transit passengers and transit passengers who stay longer than a day if departure is delayed by circumstances beyond their control.
