To do this, the shop where the purchase was made must adhere to the refund network (tax refund sticker at the entrance) and provide you with a form. After presenting the form and the merchandise to the airport office concerned, it is sent, duly stamped, to the merchant who will send a refund check by mail. In addition to the GST, there are also 10% taxes on services and 1% in certain hotels, bars, restaurants or discotheques.
