Why am I required to provide a copy of my passport? /

Vatfree is a service for residents from outside the EU to claim back their paid VAT from purchases within the EU. Therefore we are obliged to ask for your passport to verify that you live outside the European Union.

If your passport has been supplied by an European authority, please also upload a copy of your residence permit or visa that is linked to your passport.

Mask your photo and, if visible, your personal social security number, for safety reasons. We will do this if you haven't done this upfront, but its more save that your passport is in masked form on on servers from the start.
