Are you planning to visit Tahiti? Being a non-resident of French Polynesia, you can benefit from the sale on a tax-free basis, i.e. be exempt from VAT at the time of your purchase. In this case, you will only pay the amount excluding tax for your purchase on condition that you undertake to complete the formalities described below. In the event that you do not complete these formalities, you will be liable for the amount of VAT that you will have to pay to Mihiarii Pearls.

Conditions to benefit from this tax exemption

    • Be a non-resident of French Polynesia and return to your country of residence within a maximum of 6 months;
      • To meet this condition, you must be present at the time of purchase and present your identity card or passport as well as your flight ticket proving your departure within 6 months.
    • Buy for more than 30,000 XPF of goods (specific condition for our shops);
    • Sign the commitment to complete the mandatory formalities on the tax exemption slip.
  • When you leave French Polynesia:
    • Present your purchases and the visa form by the customs service before your departure;
    • Use the envelope provided to send us the pink copy of the tax-free slip.
      • If you were unable to send it before your departure, send us the form upon arrival in your country of residence to the address indicated in the legal notices.
