How to get Tax Free in Montenegro and apply for a VAT refund

Montenegro is part of the European Tax Free Shopping system, the participants of which return VAT to tourists who have made purchases in the country.

In Montenegro, VAT is 19%, and the minimum purchase amount for which tax can be refunded is 100 euros. But there are other nuances.

  1. You need to make a purchase in a store with the sign Tax Free, since not all stores provide such a bonus. When making a purchase in a store with the “Tax Refund” sign, simply ask to fill out a tax refund form.
  2. When leaving the country, you need to provide the customs service with your purchases in the original packaging, checks and passport. This must be done within 3 months from the date of purchase. Further, customs officers will issue a tax refund voucher.
  3. On your next visit to Montenegro, present your tax refund voucher at the store where the purchase was made. You will receive a refund at the store.

    Small life hack: To return the VAT on the purchase, it is not necessary to go home. It is enough to go on a one-day excursion to neighboring countries (Bosnia, Croatia, Albania) and issue a voucher at the border. And at the same time combine business with pleasure.
