Tax free refunds and refund box: Global Blue

Global Blue handles tax free refunds at Helsinki Airport.

Citizens, who live outside the EU and Norway and EU citizens, who have lived over six months outside the EU and Norway, can apply for tax free refunds for their shopping. The idea is to refund some of the VAT to the travellers i.e. cheaper shopping.

You can get a tax free refund on products that were bought in Finland and are taken outside the EU.

If Finland is the last EU country on your trip, you can apply for a tax free refund here. Otherwise contact Global Blue in the last EU country you visit on your trip.

N.B In case of cash or Alipay refund a handling fee (3 EUR) is charged for each Tax Free Form. Credit card refunds are not subject to this fee.

Payment methods: Credit card, cash and Alipay
