Persons using local airports to travel internationally will now have to pay $50 in fees to the Government of the Virgin Islands.
A breakdown of this fee — which largely has not sat well with residents — shows that persons will be required to pay $15 on departure tax, $5 on security tax, and $30 on what the BVI Airports Authority is describing as an Airport Development Fee (ADF).
