All boats arriving from abroad and staying in Portugal are obliged to pay lights and buoys tax
All boats arriving from abroad and staying in Portugal are obliged to pay lights and buoys tax which can be done in the local port captains office, the address is below and a receipt will be issued for the payment of the lights and buoys tax (taxa de farolagem). The documents should be kept with the ship’s papers while in Portuguese waters.
Visiting boats must pay €2 for a 6 month period (this may change from time of publishing so please ask at the port office for up to date prices) They are payable to either a Capitania (maritime authority) or a Delegação Maritima (maritime branch), there is at the least one of these offices in every port in Portugal. After the 6 month period if you have not left Portugal you will be obliged to pay the normal Portuguese tax rate you can get full details of this yearly tax from the Capitania (maritime authority) or look at the official document below. We are sorry it is only in Portuguese.
