Turistička Pristojba

The tourist tax is known as the tourist fee (turistička pristojba) or sojourn fee (boravišna pristojba). The law on the tourist fee regulates who pays the fee and how the revenue is allocated to local and national tourist boards. From January 2020, cruise ship passengers may now be levied and whether they are is decided by the local governments (municipalities).

The national government determine through an ordinance the band for the local governments to set the rate. In the case of cruise ships, there is a maximum rate only. The local governments known as county assemblies with the opinion of the local tourist boards decide the rate between the band, but if they choose not to, the minimum rate set by the ordinance will apply. The law states that a rate change must be decided by 31 January for the following year.
