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!

Hi Gniq22! The Global Blue website provides information on this, just as the Swiss Federal Customs website. This topic may help you out too.
