So long, departure tax

(Sorry, can't find the link, this is a news from a high level official -- will update you later). The departure tax is going to be abolished (it takes 4 years to finalize, eh?). Good. But wait, rumor has it, application fee for passport will increase ... 5 times as much! So, those who travel frequently will be happy. Those who happen to travel only once in their lifetime will be sad. The former consist of, mainly, business people, academics, bureaucrats, etc. The latter, maids, low-wage workers, etc. See my point?
