Falkland Islands (Malvinas) — Travel Tips
- Visitors are required to pay a GPB £20 (US $30) departure tax when leaving the airport.
- Stanley is home to the archipelago’s only medical care and serious incidents usually result in airlifting to nearby Chile.
- It is advised to buy a return ticket from the islands, whether traveling via air or sea, as services are fairly limited and can be fully booked during high season.
- Tipping around 10 percent is recommended in restaurants and taxis.
