Tourists will soon have to pay a new holiday tax in order to visit Ibiza
Tourists planning to visit Ibiza, Mallorca, Menorca or Malta on or after July 1 will be subject to a new “Sustainable Tourism Tax” – an effort to “protect the islands’ resources.”
The new tax impacts individuals ages 16 and up, and will be applied to each night’s stay on the islands. Ranging from 50 cents per night to €2 for visitors pursuing luxury accommodations, the tax is halved after the eighth night, and between the months of November and March. Only those residing on one of the four islands for health purposes will be exempt from the tax, though it is not confirmed what documents serve as adequate proof of said health reasons.
Meanwhile, beginning in June, Malta visitors over 18 will be required to pay a similar tax of €0.50 per night, capping at €5 per person per vacation.
