I’m a dutch citizen going to dubai I would like to buy balenciaga,gucci,louisvuitton type of clothes is there an option to get back the vat spend in those luxury shops?
Thanks in advance
There is currently no mechanism to reclaim the 5% VAT on retail purchases.
Sadly, Dubai needs the money so it's unlikely to get into VAT reclaim for tourists for a few years. They're still only working it out for residents and local businesses 😄
hi Dylan none of those brands are any cheaper in Dubai all are widely available in the shopping malls the only chance you have of making a saving is when they have sales weeks which will generally be in the low season (summer) there is always a chance of asking for discount even in a shopping mall we got 5% off a expensive braccalini hand bag
Nope and they will probably be cheaper at home.
