HOW DO I CLAIM VAT REFUNDS FOR PURCHASES I MADE?

June 20th 2018

Per government export policy, items purchased in Israel are eligible to re-collect the 17% VAT tax built into the pricing.​

Prior to ticketing and baggage check-in, you need to present the formal documents and the purchased goods (in-hand) at the VAT Refund counter located in the Departure Hall at Terminal 3.

Purchases must be more than 400 shekels and have been made at a store that formally participates in this refund, and you will need to receive from the store the original copy of the government approved invoice/receipt/ form for the item purchased.
Simply having the receipt of an item will not guarantee a refund. When you make a purchase, ask the store clerk for a special tax-refund invoice.

You will need to have the purchased item in-hand with you when applying for the refund. The item must be shown to the VAT refund authorities in person to claim the refund.​
