WHY IS THERE A TOURIST TAX?
The tourist tax is intended to contribute to the development and promotion of tourism by enabling Cape Verdians municipalities, including Sal, to finance expenses linked to tourist arrivals or to the protection of their natural areas.
WHO DOES IT CONCERN?
All travellers staying in one of the following types of accommodation have a legal obligation to pay the tourist tax: tourist hotels, aparthotels, guesthouses, Bed & Breakfasts, holiday villages, accommodation outdoors and youth hostels.
Nevertheless, there are four cases that are exempt from paying the tax.
The rate is only applicable for over 16 years
This amount must be displayed in the accommodation and must appear on the invoice issued but is not always includedin the price of the accommodation. It is therefore usual that the hotelier, the proprietor or owner asks the traveller to pay it separately.
