Ports & Port Adventures Excursions – Frequently Asked Questions

Q.

What is the Bahamas Value Added Tax?

A.

Effective January 1, 2015, the Bahamas began requiring larger businesses and shops to charge a 7.5% Value Added Tax (VAT) on most consumer products and services. 

Establishments authorized to charge the Bahamas VAT will be clearly marked with a Certificate of Registration. Smaller businesses that do not display a certificate are not permitted to add a VAT charge to your purchase.

VAT charges, if any, will automatically be included in the price of any Port Adventures excursion you book. However, the tax may be applied to some of the purchases you make while in the Bahamas. 

The VAT rate is subject to change.
