The behaviour of grey solitons incident on Kerr defocusing interfaces is studied within the framework of Helmholtz theory. We report that the refraction of grey solitons is governed by a generalized Snell's law whose validity extends to arbitrary angles. Unlike their bright or black counterparts, grey solitons may exhibit either external or internal refraction depending solely on the soliton greyness parameter.
