Can someone please set the record
straight? What is the full meaning of a “papeetised” boat
and are there any documents to reference. Occasionally, I see a boat
advertised as papeetised stating that the owner can stay in French Polynesia
indefinitely. I believe that this is misstated and only applies to EU citizens or various independent countries that have a special agreement with FP (these countries are listed on noonsite). For everyone else I think that only the boat can stay indefinitely as duties have been paid in FP.
