Nature tax - TPA




The Nature Tax TPA (Taxa de Preservação Ambiental = Tax for Conservation oft the environment) was introduced in 1989 and changed in 1995. It has to be paid by "...all people not living on the Archipel , but visit like tourist...".

Exceptions are people, that work on the island, study fauna, flora and the ecosystem of the archipelago for research or educational instituitions or that visit living relatives on the island for up to 30 days.

It must be paid directly at the airport or at the harbour. Recently it is possible to pay in advance here.

The amount depends on the time of staying and doesn't grow linearly but increases drastically after 5 days and 10 days. On the 1/1/2013 the TPA was again increased a little. A more detailed description is given in the table below.

Note that, in case you want to stay longer, you have to pay the additional tax at the latest at the day when you planned to leave originally. In case you don't, the tax doubles.



Additionally to the nature tax at the first of October was founded the so called taxa ecológica. The national park had been rented to a private institution which also takes care to the national park of Cataratas do Iguaçu. They do a lot for the improvement and the conservation of the park, but this has its price. Econoronha, how it’s called charges from all visitor of the park a entrance fee to the national park. The entrance ticket costs 65 R$ for Brazilians and 130 R$ for foreigners and is valid for ten days.Even if you only want to dive or make a boat trip you have to show at the harbor your entrance ticket. You can buy it at Projeto Tamar, at Flamboyant, the access to Baia dos Golfinhos/Praia dos Sanchos and at the access to Praia do Sueste.
