Re: Tax Free Shopping (EU returning to Switzerland)

View Post
Useful topic, my experience:

I tried to apply for tax free refund on my way to Switzerland from Prague airport.

Firstly, I should note that Prague airport is very tax free friendly for passengers. We easily received refund for my wife's checks (her flight was to non-EU country) even before passport control zone, in terminal 1 (non-EU flights terminal).

Actually, I should have added my checks to her and receive refund in that terminal, but I have already filled in "papers" with my Switzerland address details, so I went to my terminal 2 (EU flights terminal).

There, taking into account that I was in a hurry, I forgot to find tax free point before passport control zone and it was late to return, so next attempt was to receive refund in Frankfurt airport (my flight to Switzerland was via Frankfurt).

But after landing, I realized that there is no tax free refund point in EU flights area in Frankfurt airport.

So, my first attempt to claim refund was a disaster

P.S. By the way, any updates regarding chances to receive refund with L-permit?
Lol, I received tax free refund for Czech checks in Brussels airport
