Tax-free shopping

Guests visiting from outside the EU can receive tax refunds on their shopping.

Goods in Belgium are subject to Value Added Tax (VAT) and as a non-EU resident, you can reclaim up to 16% of the VAT on any items purchased in the Village, provided the goods are exported and the claim is made within three months of the purchase.

How does it work?

  1. Ask in the boutiques

    Ask for a VAT refund form every time you make a purchase of €50 or more.

  2. Fill in your details

    Add your name (exactly as it appears on your passport), address and passport number to each VAT refund form.

  3. Validate your forms

    Have your completed VAT refund forms validated at customs when you leave the EU within three months of your visit.

  4. Receive your refund

    Present the validated documents and your passport at the airport’s reimbursement desk. Alternatively send your documents to Global Blue or Premier Tax Free by post.
