If you are a tourist visiting Dubai, you may be eligible for a VAT refund when you leave the country. To be eligible for a VAT refund, you must have purchased goods from retailers participating in the 'Tax Refund for Tourists Scheme' and must export the goods out of the UAE within 90 days from the date of purchase. You must also meet other conditions, such as being at least 18 years old and physically presenting the tax invoice, 'tax-free' tags, and relevant goods when leaving the country.

To claim your VAT refund, you can use the special device placed at the departure port (airport, seaport or border port) to submit your tax invoices, a copy of your passport, and a copy of your credit card. You can then recover the VAT either in cash in UAE dirhams or have it refunded to your credit card.

Yes, if you meet specific criteria as a visitor in Dubai, you may be eligible for a VAT refund. Keep in mind that VAT refund regulations and procedures are subject to change, therefore it is best to contact with official government authorities situated in Dubai or a specialist in VAT refunds for the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Certainly! If you have been shopping in Dubai as a visitor and are preparing to leave the country, you might be eligible for a VAT refund. It's a great opportunity to inquire with the authorities or seek guidance from a tax professional to understand the process and requirements for claiming your VAT refund.
