Tax refunds for foreigners:
Tourists making purchases in Croatia (apart from petroleum derivatives) which exceed 500 Kuna per receipt may claim a VAT tax return ("PDV").

At point of purchase, the sales person will provide a PDV-P form on request, which should be filled out and stamped on the spot. On leaving Croatia, the receipt must be verified and stamped by the Croatian Customs service. A PDV refund in Kuna can be obtained within six months, either at the same shop where the goods were purchased (in which case the tax is refunded immediately), or by posting the verified receipt back to the shop, together with the account number into which the refund should be paid. In this case, the tax refund is dealt with within 15 days of receipt of the claim.
