Stamp Tax Free Form

The Tax Free Form must be export validated within 3 months after the shopping day. Export validation is a Customs stamp on your Form in Section 6 – Export validation stamp.  A customer officer takes the second part of the Form, you take the first one. Make sure your purchased goods are unused, they must be available for Customs Authorities in original undamaged package.

Remember: No Export validation stamp– No Refund
