Aruba’s duty-free pricing ensures that shoppers don’t pay import duties or taxes because prices are set by the manufacturer and any additional costs are absorbed by the retailer. Passengers returning to the United States and Canada are entitled to a duty-free tax exemption of $800.00 per person. For all possible duty-free exemptions visit www.cbp.gov or www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca
