Value Added Tax

To claim 12% VAT refund for total value of goods purchased, the amount spent should be more than P5 000. In such cases, the following is required: a tax invoice stating VAT paid, your passport number and your bank account details.

It is always advisable to keep a copy of the VAT form as a record for any followup on the transaction.

VAT claims usually can be made at all major border posts and airports.
