Foreign travelers, you can claim a tax refund on purchases that you personally export from that country. To obtain a refund within the European Union (EU) you have to reside outside the Union.
Notice: Residents of EU countries can not claim VAT for purchases made in EU.
How it works in Lithuania?
- Look out for the Global Blue logo; if you cannot see it, please ask the shop staff if they provide the service. Minimum purchase amount should exceed 200LTL per one cash receipt.
- In order to obtain a refund on purchased goods you have to prove exportation with a customs stamp on your Tax Refund Cheque. Show your goods in unused condition , receipts, and the Tax Refund Cheque to customs officials before leaving the country, and have your cheque stamped. When travelling within the EU, show your purchases and documents to customs officials in the last EU country you visit before leaving Europe.
- Customs validation should be obtained within 3 months plus the month of purchase. After customs validation there is no expiration date for Lithuanian Tax Refund Cheques.
Please note, that the final refund you receive will consist of the VAT total, minus an administration fee.
