Hi,

If I purchased goods from Italy, I understand that Swiss is not EU and hence I would not be able to claim my VAT return when I fy back from Swiss airport. I would be travelling down from Vernice to Lucern by rail.

Can anybody advise how I can claim my tax refund? Is it possible to do it at Vernice rail?

Thanks alot!
