You are eligible to shop tax free and receive VAT refund if: - your permanent residence and abode is outside the EU territory; - you are not granted with a permanent residence permit in any EU country.
Is there a set minimum amount for tax free purchases? - Yes, in every EU country we have specific requirements for a minimum purchase amount.
We recommend acquainting yourself with those customs regulations in your country of residence (or abode) that concern the import of goods by a physical person. Depending on the effective legislation in your country, upon your arrival you might need to declare the goods you are importing and pay import duties. This, however, is in no way influenced by the VAT refunds on Tax Free purchases made within the EU.
