Refund Points

To mitigate the consequences of a COVID-19 epidemic in Norway, the Government is taking drastic measures. All harbours and airports will suspend all flights and vessels effective from 08.00 am, 16 March 2020. Many of the Refund Points will eventually close down for a period of time. Thus, opening hours below are not relevant as long as the close down continues. Please contact for advice on how to receive your Tax Refund
