The latter offers services of tourist information, VAT refund, clearance of protected species, claim of retained baggage, as well as the registration of gold, foreign currencies, securities, and bonded factory export samples to be carried out of taiwan.
Among the above-mentional services, the VAT refunds service have proved to be the most popular and heavily used by foreign travelers. In 2013, 8,465 passengers applied for refund, with a total amout of 16,945,336 NTD. These figures had already risen to 13,696 passengers with 21,022,307 NTD respectively by the end of September 2014,further added by Taichung Customs.
