Tax refund

Tax Free Shopping

Foreign visitors and departing Mauritians can enjoy savings up to 15% when you shop in our Tax Free registered stores.

Tax Free purchases for Mauritians can only be collected at the airport upon international departure.

How to collect your Tax Refund:

3 Easy Steps:

Step 1 WHERE TO SHOP?


Shop at stores displaying the Tax Refund logo and ask for a VAT PAID SUPPLIES TO VISITORS receipt when your purchases total a minimum of MUR2,300 (VAT included). Check that your passport and departure details (flight or sea voyage) have been properly entered on your receipt.

Step 2 CUSTOMS


Air travel

On arriving at the SSR International Airport and before checking-in on your departure flight, get your sales receipts approved at the MRA Customs Counter in the check-in hall.

Cruise ships

The refund procedure for cruise ships depends on the individual arrangements made between the ship’s captain and the relevant Mauritian authorities at the point of calling.

Step 3 HOW TO OBTAIN YOUR REFUND?


After going through passport and security control, go to the MCCI Tax Refund Counter in the main departure lounge and present your approved VAT PAID SUPPLIES TO VISITORS receipts to collect your refund.

The Bank of Mauritius (BOM) exchange rate for notes for the previous working day is used.
