So, Japan has just introduced its ‘sayonara tax’ this month (Jan 2019), which means getting your ramen and sushi fix will cost a little more — travellers leaving the country have to fork out 1,000 yen (S$12.50) in departure taxes before they leave the country. 

Hang on a minute, countries still charge departure taxes? Yes, there are countries that still charge visitors a levy when they leave the country, but you probably don’t realise it since it’s been included in your airfare most of the time. Keywords: most of the time.

So which countries still impose an exit fee? Which ones are incorporated into your airfares, and where do you have to pay in cash at the airport? 8Days.sg has rounded up some of Singaporeans’ fave destinations in this list. Keep it handy so you don’t find yourself scrambling for small change at the airport.
