How to Claim VAT in Rome Fuimicino Airport

I just came back from Rome and successfully claimed back my VAT in cash! So, how to Claim VAT in Rome Fuimicino Airport?

So actually it is very easy and simple.. I will explain in 2 different parts..

Part 1: Checked-In Luggage

    1. This is for those who wants to check in their VAT refundable goods..
    2. Buy your stuff such as LV, Prada, Omega watches in Europe.. No matter which country also ok..
    3. If you are not sure whether they have the VAT refund services, make sure you ask first before buying!

  1. When you pay for your goods, make sure you ask for the VAT refund cheque..
  2. Then they will ask you to fill in the cheque with your names, passport number, address etc.. (If you buy in Paris LV shop, they will fill them for u!!)
  3. Then when u want to leave Europe (Last country), u have to check in first to get your boarding pass! Then tell the check-in counter to have your luggage back for VAT refund purposes.. (If u bought LV in Paris, then u wanna go Rome before going back, then u have to claim your VAT in Rome)
  4. Bring your goods, VAT refund cheque, resit & boarding pass to the custom in airport..
  5. The custom officer will stamp the VAT refund cheque
  6. Then bring the stamped VAT refund cheque to Global Blue (Biggest company)
  7. The officer in Global Blue will ask u whether want to have your refund in Cash or Credit Card..
  8. If cash, then USD, GBP or EUR..
  9. I chose EUR!
  10. Done!
