Get the VAT refunded
Aarhus Airport is responsible for customs declaration of goods. Customs stamping at the airport can take place no earlier than four hours before and no later than one hour before departure.
Refunds of Danish VAT can only be made to persons residing outside the EU who travel to a non-EU country. The amount can only be paid in Denmark if Denmark is the last EU destination before the final destination.
For purchases in shops outside the airport
Between 12% and 19% of the total price of the item is refunded depending on the amount. It must be purchased for a minimum of DKK 300 in the individual store (for Norwegians a minimum of DKK 1,200 per item).
The business issues a check on request if you are resident outside the EU. The check is stamped by SKAT before arrival at the airport.
