- A customs office, at your EU airport of departure
At most EU airports, customs offices are located at international departures. For specific location, check the website of the airport or contact their customer service before the day of your departure.
Information about the customs office at Schiphol, Amsterdam airport can be found here.
Please note that some European airports have digital tax free validation systems. These digital validation systems work only on receipts from stores from that specific country. To validate your receipts from other countries you can do two things: a. locate a customs office where they can provide a traditional customs stamp or b. go for option 2 mentioned below.
- A customs office, at your non-EU airport of arrival
At your non-EU airport of arrival, you can get a stamp a the customs desk, often called 'declare your goods'. These offices are located between the bagage claim belts and the exit.
You can also go to customs located in the departure halls close to check in. Ask an airport employee to point you in the right direction.
Please note; if there is no date included in the stamp, please ask the customs official providing the stamp to write the date of entry with a signature next to the stamp.
