    • Hello Shibu, would be able to answer your questions when final executive regulation is out. However in general, such refund is available at airports and tourists are able to claim after presenting supporting documents like VAT Invoice, Claim Forms, Copy of Travel Tickets etc. Process is generally easy and also not time consuming !!!
