Brazilian Tourist Hot Spot Introduces New Visitor Levy

15 September 2017


Brazilian beach town Jijoca de Jericoacoara has become the latest Brazilian holiday destination to introduce a tourism tax.

From September 21, visitors over the age of 12 will be charged BRL5 (USD1.6) for every night they stay in the beach town.

They must pay the charge on entry to the region and give proof of payment to their holiday accommodation provider. Persons with disabilities will not have to pay the charge.

A similar tax has already been introduced on the Brazilian island Fernando de Noronha.

Growing numbers of tourist hot spots have introduced or increased taxes on holiday makers in recent months, including the British Virgin Islands, Malaysia, and Japan.

Rio de Janeiro had proposed last year introducing a tax to establish a fund to reimburse tourists who fall victim to muggers.
