Panama Maritime Authority announced that all vessels that arrive Panama will be charged “Lights & Buoys” (USD 0.05 x GT) regardless of the activity the vessel will perform (except transit only vessels) not as in the past, vessels going berth only. It will be applied to bunkering vessels but also could be applied to vessels performing other activities like repair, etc.
The Authority has started billing retroactively as from October 2017, payment is compulsory and must be paid 5 days after receiving.
