Look for stores displaying Tax-Free Shopping signage in the window. 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 the Customs desk and present your completed Tax-Free Form, passport, receipts/invoices, and purchases to get a stamp on your form.
