Implementation of Departure Tax reduction delayed by receipt book printing issues

Following reports that persons who spend more than 24 hours in Antigua were still being charged $75 departure tax, ZJB News contacted a key source in Antigua who confirmed those reports.
The source also said the reason for the delay had to do with a receipt book printing issue resulting in the book having to be reprinted.
