Tax Free Shopping in Argentina


Look for stores displaying Global Blue Tax Free Shopping signage in the window.


When paying for your purchases ask the shop staff for a Tax Free Form.

Tax Free Forms are available in two versions, one blue, and one white. Fill in all the required fields in block letters, using the Latin alphabet.


Remember: Incomplete Tax Free Form = No refund



At the airport please allow enough time for the refund process before your flight departs.


Before you check in for your flight, go to the Customs desk and present your completed Tax Free Form, passport, receipts/invoices and purchases to get a stamp on your form.


Don’t pack away goods in your check-in luggage as you will need to show them to the Customs Officer.


Remember: No Customs Stamp = No Refund



Go to a Refund office displaying the Global Blue logo.


Present your stamped and completed Tax Free Forms to receive the refund in cash or to a credit card.


In a rush? Mail your stamped completed Tax Free Forms to the address of the Processing Centre and receive your refund on your credit card.


NB: The refund you receive is the VAT minus Global Blue’s service fee.
