Duty Free Zone
The Harbor Duty Free Zone
This Free Zone is the largest in the Caribbean. It is patronized by retailers from throughout the region, who come to stock up on goods from all over the world. It’s a distribution center for clothing textile, shoes, perfumes, pharmaceutical products, and many other wholesale or retail sale goods with attractive duty free prices. The Harbor Free Zone is a fenced-in area of 57 acres. The majority of companies established in the Harbor Free Zone are trading companies that distribute products from the United States, Europe, and Asia to the Caribbean and Latin America. There is also tax-free shopping at the free zone. Goods purchased in the Free Zone must be shipped directly to your home or transferred to your ship or flight. You can pick them up when you arrive home.
Airport Free Zone
The Airport Free Zone is located adjacent to the International Airport Hato, 8 miles (13 kilometers) from the seaport and 7 miles (11 kilometers) from town. The Airport Economic Zone is especially advantageous for companies that export goods by air. Being part of the airport customs area, the Free Zone is especially adventurous for the transshipment of high-value, low-volume consumer and capital goods.
The items purchased at the free zone may not be taken out of the zone. These items will be delivered to the buyer at the airport. Buyers at the free zone must always have a valid passport, airline ticket, or an immigration card at hand.
