Frequently Asked Questions
Duty free shopping is when you can purchase goods that have had the duty/tax (usually taxes like import, VAT, and sales tax) waivered by the government, therefore reducing the prices that you would normally expect to pay in a standard shop or website. Duty free shops are usually found at airports or sea terminals, but you can also sometimes purchase duty free goods during international flights or on cruises.
Anyone travelling internationally (between two different countries) is eligible to purchase duty free items.
The term 'duty' refers to the tax that you pay if you bring a product from one country to another. i.e. if you bought some perfume in the United Kingdom, and then flew to Germany you might have to pay tax in both countries. Most governments do not charge the duty on products bought when you are leaving that country, which means that the customer doesn't have to pay the tax twice. This usually only applies when you are leaving the country, i.e. it is for export purposes only.
As the price for items bought in duty free shops often have the duty taken off the RRP, it can make them a lot cheaper than if you bought the goods in a normal shop. However, there are usually limits on how much you can buy on your trip, and these limits will vary from country to country, and also vary from item to item (i.e. there will be different limits on alcohol and cigarettes).
The most popular items in duty free shops are usually the products that are most heavily taxed, i.e. alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco. Duty free inventories will vary from country to country, and also from airport to airport. In larger airports, you may even find different prices in the numerous shops - remember it's always best to shop around! Make sure you check our database to see all the shops at each airport, and then you can invesigate the prices at each one.
Sadly, you can't just turn up at a duty free shop with several empty suitcases and fill them up with goodies! Restrictions will be in place, and these can vary from country to country. You will only be allowed to buy certain amounts of different types of products. Tobacco, alcohol, and perfumes are usually the products that are most likely to be subject to the stricter allowances. Make sure you check whilst purchasing, or else you run the risk of your items being confiscated upon arrival at your destination's customs.
No. Duty free is only available to travellers who are flying from one country to another country.
Yes. Many duty free shops will allow you to pre-order any purchases online before your journey. You will need your boarding pass and passport when you pick the items up from the airport shop.

“O Aeroporto mais bonito do Brasil mas se não for feito logo a ampliação vai piorar a situação de estrangulamento. Hj já é o mais movimentado do Nordeste e vai passar( se a Infraero concluir) a ter capacidade para 19 milhões de passageiros/ano .”
“Um bom aeroporto, considerando a precariedade dos existentes no Brasil. Está sendo ampliado, pelo que vi, passará a ser um dos melhores no país, vai ter a maior capacidade de passageiros do Nordeste e um dos mais mais bonitos se seguir o projeto.”
“Nothing special in this terminal. Its a standard brazilian airport. Getting to the airport is not so easy and there is trafic jam.The terminal itself is modern, but small and everything is very expensive. There are 3 restaurants and one fast food. Fast food is not so expensive. Bathrooms should be better (very hard to have water in some faucets. Immigration is ok, but secury procedure there is just one belt for a whole flight... Took me 20 mins just to have my luggage scan. (7 people in front of me in the line). Baggage claim is fine. Taxis are very expensive too.”
