It should be noted that the tax refund forms of Switzerland need to be affixed with the stamp of Swiss customs.

  • 3.Can I use my UnionPay card for a tax refund if I haven’t paid with the UnionPay card when shopping at stores?

    Yes, you can. A tax refund form issued by a store generally will provide three options for tax refunds, namely, bank cards, cash and cheques. To use a UnionPay card for a tax refund, you only need to fill in your UnionPay card number(see the picture below). You may tell the attendant at the airport’s tax refund counter that you are using a UnionPay card to claim a tax refund.

  • 4.Can both UnionPay debit cards and credit cards be
    used for claiming tax refunds on purchases?

    Yes. All UnionPay debit cards and credit cards (card number starts with 62) can be used for claiming tax refunds on purchases. Generally, the bank card column on tax refund forms is marked with “Credit Card”. However, no matter this blank is filled with the number of a UnionPay debit card or credit card, the refund will be transferred to the corresponding account.

  • 5.Can UnionPay cards be used for claiming tax refunds if no UnionPay logo or word appears on the tax refund forms?

    Yes. Although in some countries, the UnionPay logo or words are not printed on tax refund forms due to system reasons, you can still fill in your UnionPay card number to claim tax refunds on the forms of tax refund agencies cooperating with UnionPay.

  • 6.How can I inquire the processing status of a tax refund after claiming it ?

    Currently, there are 2 ways to track your refund status:
    • UnionPay International wechat account. Find UnionPay International wechat account by scanning the QRC and enter “Help center->Tax refund->tax refund tracker”.
    • UnionPay app. Enter “more->overseas services->overseas tax refund”.

  • 7.Can purchased goods for tax refund be used immediately?

    No. Purchased goods cannot be opened or used until they are examined by customs before departing from the territory.

  • 8.Do I need to put all the purchased goods for tax refund
    in my hand luggage?

    Yes. If the goods are too large to carry on an airplane, you may put them with your checked luggage after the goods are examined by customs. Customs may refuse to stamp or confirm your tax refund information if the goods are not inspected by the customs.
