NEW VAT REFUND PROCEDURE

THE TAX REFUND SYSTEM IS CHANGING FOR THE BETTER

Starting from 10 March 2015 at Milano Malpensa T1, the new VAT refund system for purchases made in Italy will be available. In fact, this new electronic process will replace the current manual procedure. The new agile and fast Tax Refund at Malpensa T1 is the most advanced and innovative system of all the airports in Italy.

LESS BUREAUCRACY, MORE TIME TO RELAX

By simplifying the verification of passengers’ documents, this new system considerably reduces the time necessary to receive the refund. Waiting for departure will now always be more relaxing for travelers and allow them to better enjoy the wide range of services available at the airport.

THE ADVANTAGES OF A FASTER REFUND

Faster refunding provides an immediate sense of calmness, a fundamental requirement of any traveler. But this also provides more time for passengers to take advantage of the best deals at the ample amount of shops at Malpensa, so the additional time gained can lead to extra savings.

NOT ONLY FAST, BUT ALSO EASY

Passengers are asked to go directly to the Tax Refund counter where the service is available starting from 4 hours before the flight. In some cases, passengers might have to proceed to customs for an official verification, but only if indicated by the red "stop light".
