Jun 05, 2019

With the rise of Plastic Surgery in Korea, there are more travellers going to South Korea to do cosmetic surgeries. You can now save more money as Seoulmade confirms that you can get a tax refund for plastic surgery procedures done in South korea.

Korea’s Ministry of Health and Welfare have updated the website this year on 15th June that tax refund is available until December 2019 this year. Travellers can go to tax refund booths in the Airport to refund up to 10% of tax for plastic surgery procedures (legal institutes and registered companies) done in Korea. Procedures include, double eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, liposuction etc..

Of course, the hospitals that are participating in this tax refund have to be registered in the Ministry of Health and Welfare. Till date, there are 1522 hospitals and organisations that are participating in this scheme

Travellers receiving plastic surgery procedures need to receive an authorised receipt of the detailed procedures done in the hospitals to be eligible for tax refund. Additionally, tax refund is possible only for procedures dated within 3 months after the receipt is issued.

When you are in Incheon, Gimhae, Gimpo and Gyeongju International Airport, you can find the tax refund window in the duty-free area. If you are in Fuyang or Daegu Airport and other places that does not have tax refund windows, you can fill up the tax return in a form and you will receive the tax refund after you return to your country .

Most importantly, the procedure has to be 2 million Won and below. At the same time, the tax refund window set up in department stores and other places may handle your case. The medical Korean aid center will soon set up a tax refund window in such places. However, within a span of 3 months, the applicant applying for the tax must leave the area to receive the tax refund.

If you are interested in the details of the tax refund or have any other doubts, you can go to Seoulmade’s website and do a free consultation. Looking forward to seeing you.
