TRS applications

How do the apps work?


The mobile and web Tourist Refund Scheme (TRS) applications (apps) allow you to enter the information required to lodge a TRS claim.


Using the apps you can enter:

  • your travel details
  • details of the goods for which you are claiming a refund of goods and services tax (GST) and/or wine equalisation tax, and
  • how you prefer to receive your tax refund.

The information will be stored in a QR code. This QR code is your TRS claim code. You must present your TRS claim code to an officer at the TRS facility on your departure from Australia.

If you successfully enter your claim details using the web app, you might be able to use a dedicated queue at the TRS facility and your claim should be processed faster.
