Zoll Border Cross Austria

Hi Guys,

I just live near the border of Austria.
We we do a lot of shopping over the border.

Unfortonatly a lot of times we try to get the stamp on our invoice in Austria, the border is closed (weekend, or after 17:00) and we cannot get the stamp so the invoice... so no cash back as it needs to be stamped on the same day (?).

I heard that there is also a "Decleration box" on the border??

Also someone told me there is a border 24H open?

How do you guys manage this??

Thanks a lot:-)

Re: Zoll Border Cross Austria

Thats for the reply, but this are the Zoll in Swiss.... Some of them i see are open on the weekends and at night...

But (if i understand correctly) i still need to stamp the invoice at the Austian border first... to be able to get TAX refund...

No idea why this would be different with Austria, on leaving Germany I get the stamp from the Swiss customs officer

Re: Zoll Border Cross Austria

Exactly.

Even if you need something from the Austrians:
Exporting from one country requires importing into the other, so opening times can be expected ot be the same.

Open is one thing, manned is another.

He needs it manned as well as open.

And just because one side is manned is no reason to assume that the other side is as well.

Lol. You clearly had not crossed the border many times in the past nor recent past. Many Swiss border crossing are not manned, while the German sides are.

I think there were even times in the pre-Schengen era were the Italian side of Splügenpass was closed but the Swiss side was fully open (or vice versa).

Here the opening times of the Austrian crossings. Do not know which ones are relevant, but Lustenau is the the one with the longest opening times in any category.

He needs one from the Austrians, not the Swiss!

Also, the Swiss stamp it when you enter Switzerland, NOT when you leave Germany!
