Yes, on 11th September 2018, Minister of Finance Mangala Samaraweera opened a special VAT refund counter at the Katunayake International Airport departure terminal yesterday to serve international travellers. Which means a re-payment of 15% VAT to foreign tourists on departure, for goods purchased during their stay in Sri Lanka.
