I have received news from a cruiser that a new tax is now being imposed on foreign flagged yachts on arrival in Venezuela (or leaving, if not yet payed). The tax is 1% of the yachts value - insurance valuation or bill of sale to be produced. A ZARP will not be issued to yachts leaving if this tax is not paid, even if they arrived before the tax's implementation date (1st Sept "09).

If you leave Venezuela waters and return, the tax must be paid again.

Can anyone else confirm this tax please?

Looks like they don't want cruisers there any longer.

It has been confirmed directly from the Venezuela tax office that this tax ONLY applies to local citizens that import a boat. Foreign vessels can come and go as normal (adhering to local customs rules).

Visiting yachts are welcome.
