Compelling visitors to shop may break the law

The Customs and Excise Department has written to the TIC, stating that travel agents and people in their employ are subject to the regulation of the Trade Descriptions Ordinance (Cap. 362). Please click here for the letter and a leaflet about the conduct of professional tourist guides (in Chinese only).

For enquiries about the Trade Descriptions Ordinance, please call the Customs and Excise Department on 2707-7733.
