Residents on Svalbard can be given refund of Norwegian VAT (moms) on goods that is taken as part of their personal luggage to Svalbard.

The goods must be presented to the Governor unused and in original packaging. A receipt must be presented. It is up to the seller whether the VAT is refunded or not. The Governor only signs and stamps the form from the Norwegian Customs, and not other forms, for example from Global Blue.
