When paying for your purchases, ask store staff for a Global Blue Tax Free Form.
If you are a SHOP TAX FREE Card holder, present your card to store staff. Your personal details will automatically be filled out on the Tax Free Form.


At the airport or port, go to the Customs desk and present your completed Tax Free Form, passport, receipts and purchases to get a stamp on your form.
Goods should be kept available for inspection, unused and with the original receipts.


Go to the nearby desk or office displaying a Global Blue logo. In some cases this will be a currency exchange.

Present your stamped, completed Tax Free Form to receive the refund in cash or to your credit cards.
In a rush? Use the Global Blue mailbox located nearby most Customs offices, to mail your completed, stamped Tax Free Form and receipts back to Global Blue for a refund to your credit card. We recommend you add your email address to the Tax Free Form in case we need to contact you.
Refund paid is the VAT minus Global Blue’s service fee.

Use the Global Blue prepaid envelope provided by the shop where you made your tax free purchase. Alternatively, you may use your own envelope but you will need to pay for postage.
