  • The GST can be claimed back if the item is purchased within 60 days of travelling.
  • You must show the Tax Invoice(s) at customs before you depart overseas.
  • You must take the goods through customs with you.
  • Minimum $300 (incl GST) on the combined total of your tax invoices.
  • You can open and use the goods within the 60 days prior to departure.
