Not sure if this question has been answered. I'm traveling to Paris and for my return I'm transferring from London. My questions are do all my items have to be in the original package with the tags attached? Would I be able to show them the items with my purchased receipts and the appropriate forms to get my VAT back? Also since my last EU country is England due to the transfer do I have to claim my VAT in London, if so would I need to get the refund in cash? Also once I received my refund, do they staple or mark anything in my passport and is it nessarary to keep the reciepts to show the Canadian custom?
