Tax free - VAT refund

All non-Iceland residents are tax free eligible. The minimum amount on one single purchase receipt must be ISK 6.000. The original purchase receipts must be attached to the tax free form. The retailer signature must be on the tax free form.

Tax free forms must be export validated (stamped by customs) only if the refund amount is above ISK 5.000.

How does it work:

If you purchase items in a local store and are going to export them from Iceland, then you should ask in the store for a Tax Free form. The form is filled in by the store and the original purchase receipts attached to it.

When you leave the country you take the goods purchased, the tax free forms and the receipts with a refund amount higher than ISK 5.000 to the customs office to have the form stamped and thereby export validated.

You then take the tax free forms, together with the original purchase receipts, to the International Refund Point and get your refund.

Please follow this link for information on the location of the refund point at Keflavik Airport.

Do I need a customs stamp on my form to get a refund?

If the amount of the refund exceeds ISK 5.000, the customs authorities shall confirm the export of the goods with a signature/stamp on the tax free form.

Where do I get the stamp? Where is the customs office?

Where you get the stamp depends on where you departure:
