Fiji Visitors Can Get VAT Refund

Tourists who make a purchase of $500 or more while in Fiji will now receive Value Added Tax (VAT) refunds upon their departure. The Tourist VAT Refund Scheme (TVRS) allows for refunds to be collected at the ANZ Nadi Airport Branch and at the Suva Wharf for visiting cruise liners. Conversion to foreign currency is an individual option, but the nominated currency must be on the ANZ Standard Currencies Listing.

To be eligible for a VAT refund a tourist must not be a Fiji citizen, holder of a Fiji passport, employed in Fiji the past six months, nor a member of cabin or flight crew and not under the age of 13.

To qualify a tourist must:

*   Spend FJ$500 (VAT inclusive) or more in any of the registered VAT refund outlets on the same day.
*   Take the goods out of Fiji within two months from the date of purchase.
*   Present the goods for inspection along with the Refunds Form, original tax invoice, passport and international boarding pass to a Customs Officer at the Tourist VAT Refund Inspection Counter.
