VILLAGE headmen must report any strange activities on yachts that berth in their waters.
Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority CEO Jitoko Tikolevu said islanders must expect an influx of yacht arrivals in their waters.
Mr Tikolevu said this was because of the cheap tax rates that government levied on yachts.
"Fiji is competing with other Pacific nations and in a bid to ensure we attract more yachts to our waters, we have introduced low taxation rates on yachts," he said.
"We are trying to get in as many yachts as we can because this means business for our people out there.
"We are monitoring these arrivals and requesting village headmen to co-operate with us in reporting any suspicious activities on yachts that visit their waters."
Mr Tikolevu said village headmen could contact their provincial offices and their nearest police station.
"We do not rule out the possibilities of yachties engaging in illegal activities and we plead with locals to work with us in ensuring our waters remain crime-free.
"However, village headmen are not empowered yet to go aboard yachts and conduct enquiries.
"The authority is working closely with stakeholders to ensure such people are empowered to carry out enquiries on yachts in the future."
