In order to get the refund, you have to go to a “Refund Center” (for example the one in the New Orleans Airport), present all vouchers and corresponding sales receipts, passport and international travel ticket. The refund is paid in cash up to US$500. If the refund is over $500, a check will be issued. Refunds can also be obtained by mail.
