Global Blue

You can save money next time you go shopping, simply by asking about Global Blue Tax Free Cheques!

Foreign visitors are entitled to a refund when they make purchases in excess of CHF 300 (including VAT), provided the goods leave the country within 30 days. It's as easy as this:

  • GET IT
    When paying for your purchases, ask for a Tax Refund Cheque.
    When you leave Switzerland, either to go home or continue your journey in another country, present your purchases, receipts and passport to Swiss customs officials, who will stamp your Tax Refund Cheque.
  • To claim an immediate refund, simply present your stamped Tax Refund Cheque, passport and credit card at the Global Blue customer service desk or at a partner organisation refund point. Your refund can be paid out in cash or credited back to the card used to make the purchases.

Spend at least CHF 300 (per day or per shop) and save cash on your shopping! The items you buy must be taken out of the country within 30 days of purchase. Please note that the amount of the refund is equivalent to the VAT paid less an administrative fee.
