VAT refund - Tax Free

Tourists who reside abroad can claim a proportional VAT refund when shopping in Iceland. The refund is limited to purchases that are intended to be taken out of the country and amount to a minimum of ISK 4.000 (including VAT), made at a single point of sale.

The store personnel will fill out the necessary Tax Refund Cheque. The cheque and the purchased goods must be produced and made available for inspection in Iceland on departure no later than 3 months after purchase. 

The Embassy of Iceland in Brussels can not custom clear goods under any circumstances as it must be done in Iceland at the point of departure by a customs official.

When departing from Keflavik Airport the Tax Refund Cheque can be cashed in the currency of choice. Other departure points usually offer mail-refund services.
