Orange Jordan” signs partnership agreement with TAG-Org to introduce new tax-free shopping services in its showrooms


Orange Jordan recently signed a partnership agreement with Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-

Org) to provide an exclusive sales tax refund in all of its showrooms for customers who have residency outside of Jordan or are holders of a non-Jordanian passport.


The agreement came during a signing ceremony held at TAG University and that was attended by Chairman of TAG-Org Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh and, from Orange Jordan, CEO Jérôme Hénique and Deputy CEO and Chief Consumer Officer Patrice Lozé, along with a number of top officials from both sides.


With this agreement, Orange Jordan joins a network of accredited merchants that are offering sales tax-free shopping to tourists and Jordanians not residing in the Kingdom, and will become part of a larger group that aims to stimulate tourism.


Customers wishing to benefit from this exclusive refund are requested to fill out the designated tax-free form upon making a purchase in any of Orange Jordan’s showrooms displaying the tax-free sign. Before leaving the country, customers then present their passport, proof of purchase (receipt), and actual item bought from Orange, at the customs desk in order to receive their refund.

Through TAG’s new tax-free shopping initiative, the group will manage all procedures for the qualified beneficiaries, after signing a contract with the Ministry of Finance’s Income and Sales Tax Department.

During the ceremony, Chairman of TAG-Org Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh pointed to the importance of this commercial activity and its direct link to tourism, affirming that tourism is internationally recognized as an integral part of a country’s economy. He stressed that “a tax refund for tourists and non-residents on their purchases that they take abroad with them when they leave the Kingdom will positively affect the promotion of tourism and commerce, which ultimately serves to bolster the national economy.”


CEO of Orange Jordan Jérôme Hénique said: “We are proud to be part of such an important movement being spearheaded by TAG-Org, as we work together to spark tourism and commercial activity, which are two of the most crucial factors in maintaining a healthy, stable national economy.


Hénique went on to say that this new tax-free shopping service amplifies efforts already undertaken to provide Jordanian customers and tourists with an unmatched experience, as it will offer greater flexibility in obtaining the services and products they want, in addition to new stand-alone headsets, gadgets, and exclusive items found only at the Smart Store, which is a key goal of Orange Jordan’s five-year corporate strategy, Essentials 2020. By consistently updating its products and services, bringing the latest innovations to the Jordanian market, and introducing special purchase deals, such as this tax refund, Orange Jordan further contributes to solidifying its leading position in the telecommunications industry.

Customers wishing to benefit from this exclusive refund are requested to fill out the designated tax-free form upon making a purchase in any of Orange Jordan’s showrooms displaying the tax-free sign. Before leaving the country, customers then present their passport, proof of purchase (receipt), and actual item bought from Orange Jordan, at the customs desk in order to receive their refund.
