VAT refund payments are generally paid by means of a
VAT Refund Card.
The VAT Refund Card is issued by Travelex Card Services Limited, pursuant to license by MasterCard? Asia/Pacific Pte. Ltd. MasterCard? and the MasterCard? Brand Mark are registered trademarks of MasterCard? International.
Generally, VAT refunds for claims less than R3?000.00 are loaded onto the VAT Refund Card within 3-4 weeks of the claimant’s date of departure. Refunds for greater amounts are loaded once the claim had been approved by the South African Revenue Service. This generally takes a minimum of 3-4 months.
Various alternative payment methods are also available should the VAT Refund Card payment method be unavailable or uneconomic.
Detailed information on how to use the VAT Refund Card, review balance and other information may be found on this website.
