El Salvador loses tourism revenue

Monday, August 25, 2014

El Salvador's tourism industry is losing potential revenue due to a $32 tax for air passengers making a connection in the Oscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez international airport.

The time it takes for passengers to paying the tax and its related paperwork prevent them from leaving the airport and spending on Salvadoran goods.

The whole process can take up to two hours, from filling the form to being authorized to leave the terminal.
