    The Tourist Refund Scheme (TRS) allows Australian and overseas passengers to claim a refund (subject to certain conditions) of GST and WET paid on goods purchased in Australia and taken home as cabin luggage.
    Australia’s TRS is different to refund schemes in other countries. To claim a refund in Australia you must meet the following conditions:
    • Spend a minimum of AUD$300 (GST inclusive) in the one shop;
    • Obtain a single valid tax invoice for the goods, totaling AUD$300 or more (GST inclusive);
    • Purchase the goods within 30 days of departing Australia;
    • Carry the goods with you as cabin luggage
