Duty Free Ferry Cruise Ports | Freeport Area of Bataan - FAB



Freeport Area of Bataan - FAB

There is a duty free Seaport Shop at this location where you can buy goods for your cruise or ferry sailing. Some port stores have restrictions as to whether you can buy tax free goods on disembarkation or only on embarkation. This will depend on the local rules and also if your ship is travelling to an international destination.

In general, you will be allowed to buy on embarkation, if your destination is another Country and your cruise or ferry is travelling in international waters. This rule does not apply to those travelling within The EU, nor does it apply to those travelling domestically, within the same country. Some countries permit “arrivals duty free shopping”, in this case you will also be able to buy when you disembark your ship.

In the Philippines downtown duty free shopping is available at various locations. The primary site in Manila is known as the Fiesta Shopping Center at the Columbia Complex. Cebu hosts two locations, the Cebu Waterfront and also at the SM City Mall, one of the largest in the world. Clark Freezone, in Angeles City, is a tax-free area with numerous stores selling duty free goods, Subic Bay nearby hosts another Freezone. Half Moon Bay Duty Free, named after the port in the Caribbean can be found in the Freeport area of Bataan.
