Tax Free shopping in Norway

Norway is outside the EU, meaning that all Passengers living outside the Nordic can buy Tax Free when they are visiting Norway.

Global Blue Tax Free has experienced that many Passengers are struggling with filling out the Tax Free forms they get after making the purchases. To reduce this problem, Global Blue has made a purchase card for FREE for all people travelling, this card fill inn all information that has to be at the form. We hope you can send this information to you travelers when they have purchased a ticket for the cruise. Note; it can take up to 2 weeks to get the traveler card, so this info has to follow the order when the traveler has made the purchase.
