While visiting the United Arab Emirates you can take advantage of tax-free shopping. The monetary compensation is called VAT. Several conditions should be fulfilled to get the paid tax back.
The process of tax repayment is fully automated and 100% digital. The payout of VAT will be done if you are older than 18 and you have a QR-code sticker with a ‘Tax-Free Tag’.
How to claim a VAT refund at Dubai Airport? It is done very easily at a validation point in the Departures area. Before checking luggage, you need to validate the product items you have bought in Dubai/the UAE. There are 3 terminals across DXB where you can do it. At one of the kiosks, you will be paid back 85% of the money spent on VAT. The admin fee of AED 4.80 ($1.3) is held back for every tax-free form.
To get the tax refund at Dubai Airport at Terminal 3, you should find a validation point that corresponds to your class of service on a plane. If it is a first or business class, you need to go to the counter desk with the sign “Planet Payment’ on it. It is located not far from the luggage assembly desk. In case you have chosen an economy class service in an airline, look for the VAT refund service between T3 Airside and the APM platform.
The shops with VAT options work in significant cities in the UAE. There are general VAT refund rules that cover all of the UAE.
Before check-in head off to a validation point to register your Tax-Free form. At Dubai Airport, tax refund locations can be found throughout the airport. There you need to scan the QR code or enter your passport number. If everything has been done correctly, you will see the green light. Then you should choose a preferable VAT refund method. There are 4 of them: debit or credit cards, cash, and a digital wallet method.
