How to get a refund?

  1. Make purchases at stores that are part of the GLOBAL BLUE system (usually indicated by a Tax Free Shopping sign on the entrance doors). Obtain Tax Free receipts, which must be stamped onto the sales receipts by the store employee responsible for serving customers under the GLOBAL BLUE system.
  2. Present all Tax Free receipts at customs. A customs officer should stamp them to confirm crossing the border.
  3. Please note that you may be asked to show the purchase and present your tourist visa.
