When paying for your purchases ask the shop staff for a Tax Free Form.
Tax Free Forms are available in two versions, one blue, and one white.
Fill in all the required fields in block letters, using the Latin alphabet.
Remember: Incomplete Tax Free Form = No refund
At the airport please allow enough time for the refund process before your flight departs.
Before you check in for your flight, go to a Global Blue Refund Office (if your last EU departure point is Sweden, Denmark, Norway or Finland) or go to Customs ( if your last EU departure point is another EU country) and present your completed Tax Free Form, passport, itinerary, receipts/invoices and purchases to get a stamp on your form.
Make sure the goods are unused.
Don’t pack them away in your check-in luggage as you will need to show them to the Customs Officer.
Remember: No Export Stamp = No Refund
Go to a Refund counter displaying the Global Blue logo.
Present your stamped and completed Tax Free Forms to receive the refund in cash or to a credit card.
Please note that only credit card payment is available at Göterborg Landvetter airport.
In a rush? Mail your stamped completed Tax Free Forms to the address of the Processing Centre and receive your refund on your credit card.
NB: The refund you receive is the VAT minus Global Blue’s handling fee.
