Tourist Tax Refund Scheme

Yue Hwa is one of the participating shop in the Tourist Refund Scheme (TRS). As a tourist in Singapore, if you make any purchase of more than SGD 100 (including GST) at participating shops, you may claim a refund on the 7% Goods and Services Tax (GST) paid on your tax free logo
Are you eligible for a GST refund? You must be a tourist and must meet the following criteria:
  • You are not a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident;
  • You spent 365 days or less in Singapore in the last 24 months before the date of purchase;
  • You have not been employed in Singapore in the past six months before the date of purchase.
  • You are not a crew member of the aircraft which you are leaving Singapore by;
  • You are aged 16 or above at the time of purchase;
  • If you are a student pass holder, you must have purchased the goods in the last four months before the expiry date of your student pass and remain outside of Singapore for a minimum period of 12 months after departing with your goods.
  • You are leaving Singapore from Changi Airport or Seletar Airport. You will not be eligible for a GST refund if you are leaving Singapore by the Causeway.
  • You must have made your purchases within two months from when you apply for a refund.

Where to get your refund:
