Sorry if I'm new to this board and not sure how questions are to be phrased. I'm British and am hoping to study in the US next year for 1 year. I'm not sure if I will stay the full year as my academic term is only about 10 months long, but will probably get an F-1 Visa which should be for about a year. I will only be buying a one way ticket as I will buy a return ticket closer to the time. I was hoping to buy a new phone sometime in the near future and note that phones in the US tend to be about 15% cheaper than phones here for the exact same thing. However I remembered that foreigners can claim VAT back which would make phones here cheaper.
Is this possible if I'm natively British?
