Notice # 7

Notice on Port Dues, SOHAR Port and Freezone, 31st December 2009

Since 1st January, 2005, SIPC - the Port Authority of SOHAR Port and Freezone - charges a Project Cargo Surcharge of US$1.00 (One United States Dollar only) per freight ton (W/M) on project cargoes relating to projects inside the SIP concession area.
Please note that this surcharge applies to both materials/cargoes entering construction sites and materials/cargoes leaving construction sites. Once a site is no longer a construction site (implying that full rent is being paid to SIPC), the Project Cargo Surcharge will no longer be levied.
This notice will replace the notice nr 5 and the notice in the Port Guide Sohar, dated June 01, 2006 (Annex1).
