Free port

From Academic Kids

A free port (porto franco) or free zone (US: Foreign-Trade Zone) is a port or area with relaxed jurisdiction with respect to the country of location. Most commonly this means being free of customs or being a special customs zone with favorable customs regulations. Earlier in time some free ports enjoyed political autonomy.

Many international airports have free ports.
