Thank you for the message. No there isn’t an amount like there is in the UK. However, some high end luxury stores will limit how many bags they sell you, for example I believe Hermes limits it to 2 a year with the same passport. Also, keep in mind the more items you have the more likely it is you will get searched when you go through customs so just make sure you have all the information / products readily available!
Thank you for your question about the tax refund process in Paris!
Great question, you will need to drop the forms off in the box before Airport Security. I would recommend that you double check in Greece to see if anything needs to be scanned as I’m not 100% familiar if they require an extra scanning (better safe than sorry).
Yes, please have any goods that you declare for the VAT tax refund with you at all times. It is unlikely but possible that they could ask to be seen.
I hope that answers your question on the tax refund policy in Paris!
