Thanks for creating such forums to assist the tourists. This is really very helpful.

I will be traveling to Basel from London for 3 days.

Please advise if I can claim VAT refund on goods if I buy from Swiss? and if yes how to claim that.

Hi Ashish,

Glad you're finding it useful here! It only works on goods (not services like hotels, transport), and from a minimal amount. Hence I never qualified myself :-)
