a) The invoiced amount must exceed €75.00.
b) Your passport must indicate a domicile/residence outside the European Union (EU).
d) You must prove the export of the item to the seller. This is done by returning to the seller
• the form issued by the seller, or
• the invoice
endorsed by the customs office at the point of exit (i.e. the last customs office before leaving the EU).
An endorsement can be issued at a later date only in special, exceptional cases. At some border-crossings, private clearance offices have been set up that handle the refunding procedure on your behalf against a fee.
On the other hand, in several non-EU countries the seller will refund the value-added tax paid when making a purchase.
