Free Trade Zones
There are four free trade zones in Venezuela. One of them is very small. This is the Paraguana Peninsula Free Trade Zone that is for industrial purposes only. The entire island of Margarita is another free trade zone that is the duty-free area. The sale of duty-free merchandise from the island to the mainland is subject to quotas. The third is the Merida Free Trade Zone that was declared as a free trade zone to the producers of goods and services within the cultural, scientific and technological areas. The last is the Santa Elena de Uairen Free Trade Zone that is located in the State of Bolivar.

Duty-free bonded warehouses are available at ports, airports and in most major towns.
