Tax Free opened at airports in Uzbekistan

The press service of the Uzbekistan Airports management company announces the opening of Tax Free racks installed by the State Tax Committee at Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara, Fergana and Urgench international airports on January 2, 2023.

The Tax Free system implies the return to foreign citizens of VAT amounts paid by them when purchasing certain types of goods from entrepreneurs engaged in retail trade in Uzbekistan. The list of goods covered by cashback is specified in the decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of November 8, 2022. These are souvenirs, nuts, fruits and dried fruits, leather and fur products, carpets, textiles and much more.

To get a VAT refund, you need to register in the Soliq mobile application and scan receipts for purchases made in it. When departing at the airport, the passenger needs to check in for the flight, then contact the Tax Free counter, presenting the boarding pass and the goods themselves. The registered goods can be left for carriage in hand luggage, or return to the check-in desk and put in the luggage.

The total amount of the purchase of goods subject to the Tax Free system must be at least 1 million soums. Also, the product should not be opened and used. Employees of the tax committee, after checking the compliance of the goods with all the criteria, issue cashback. For various categories of goods, the passenger can refund up to 90% of the VAT amount. Cashback is issued to the passenger's card and paid after the 25th day of the month following the month in which the refund was registered.
