 Tourists can reclaim VAT using self-service kiosks

Tourists can now reclaim their taxes on shopping from the Self-Service Kiosks which will be set up at major shopping malls and hotels across the country.

“The Value Added Tax (VAT) Recovery Self-Service Kiosks for Tourists scheme has been expanded to be available at major shopping malls and hotels, in addition to the existing ones at air, land, and maritime entry and exit ports across the UAE,” announced the Federal Tax Authority, (FTA).

In a statement, the FTA explained that the kiosks allow tourists to process their requests to recover VAT from the convenience of their hotel or at major malls in a matter of minutes. Applicants can scan their boarding pass to prove they will be leaving the UAE in the next 24 hours, as well as their original passport (or identity card for GCC nationals), and then follow the simple instructions displayed at the self-service kiosks.
