HOW IS TAX CLAIMED BACK?
Non-EU residents can claim tax back on all purchases they take home in three easy steps:
- When making a purchase at any boutique displaying the ‘Tax Free Shopping’ sign, ask for a Tax Refund form.
- When leaving the European Union simply present purchases, receipts and passport to Customs officials, who will validate Tax Refund forms.
- Show your validated forms and passport at a Tax Refund Office in the airport to receive an immediate refund.
Please note that your form needs to be submitted for the customs stamp within 3 months from the issue of your Tax Refund form.
