    Abstract

    The Passenger Movement Charge (PMC) is a levy of $47 on departing passengers, covering
    outbound international visitors and outbound Australian residents. Currently, around
    $503 million is sourced from this tax.
    The study considers the impacts of a 20% increase in the PMC. A computable general
    equilibrium (CGE) model is used to assess the impacts of the PMC on key macroeconomic
    variables, such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Gross National Income (GNI) and
    Economic Welfare, and on tourism industry indicators such as output and employment. The
    study also looks at the impacts on the international and Australian resident outbound travel
    segments.
