Tax refund - French Customs Office at Basel SBB?

Dear all,




Any one know the location and the opening hours of the French Customs Office at Bāle SNCF (i.e. Basel SBB) Station?

I will be traveling from Paris to Basel and want to have my VAT refund forms stampled by the French Customs Officers.




Thank you very much.

Usually they board the train before Basel.
If not you can post the form to the French Customs and they will stamp and return it.

Thanks! But will they stamp the forms if I just "post" to them? They have no idea if I am in France or elsewhere and my identity (if I just post to them they have no chance to check my passport I guess?)

I also heard that it is not very often that there are French Customs on board on the Paris -> Basel train...
