VAT refund for hotel accommodation in South Korea


Holiday in South Korea is becoming more profitable — foreign tourists will return part of the money spent on travel.

According to the Ministry of Tourism of South Korea, in 2018, the country will act as an official promotion for foreign guests. Travelers who live in South Korean hotels will be able to get back 10% of the cost of accommodation in the hotel. A peculiar hotel Tax Free will operate until the end of this year (until December 31, 2013), provided that the tourist resides in the country for not more than 30 days.

To get a refund for accommodation in a hotel in South Korea, the traveler needs to keep a special receipt that he will be given at the hotel, then this document is presented along with the application form for VAT refund to the representative of the relevant tourist service. Such points are organized on the territory of airports, seaports and tourist centers.

The National Tourism Organization notes that the compulsory conditions for receiving such a refund are the actual payment of the hotel's services directly in the hotel complex, but at the same time preliminary hotel reservations via online services or travel agencies are allowed. The amount includes breakfast included in the room rate, but does not include the rest of the tourist's expenses at the hotel. In addition, the tourist undertakes to leave the territory of South Korea not later than three months after eviction from the hotel.

You can get a refund of the value-added tax for accommodation in a Korean hotel in the hotels of Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Gyeonggi-do, Chungcheong-Namdo, Cholla-Namdo, Gyeongsangnam-do. The National Tourism Organization reserves the right to adjust the list of hotels that provide travelers with a VAT refund.
