The Azores is an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, belonging to Portugal. The economy of the islands is largely based on tourism – it is possible to relax here in good conditions all year round. For several years now, selected Portuguese municipalities have been collecting climate taxes – is this also the case in the Azores?

How much is the tourist tax in the Azores?

The Azores has decided to introduce a climate tax in 2024, but final decisions have not yet been made. For now, the tax is to be levied only on the island of São Miguel, and the amount of the climate fee will reach a maximum of 2 euros per day. According to the announcement, only the first five days of stay will be taxed.

Prices in the Azores will also rise due to a maritime tax to be levied on cruise passenger ships. The proposal is to harge each passenger €3, but the final rate is still awaiting official approval. Children under the age of 10 will be exempt from the tax. The cruise tax is scheduled to go into effect in January 2025.

Do residents also have to pay the cruise tax?

Individuals who are citizens of another country but own property in the Azores and have been granted resident status will be exempt from paying the tourist tax. However, if such property is used for commercial purposes and rented out to tourists, visitors will have to pay a tourist tax.
