Travel Agents Incentive Scheme

 On 23 October 2019, the Government, together with the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and the TIC, announced the launch of the Travel Agents Incentive Scheme, aimed at providing cash incentives for travel agents based on the number of inbound and outbound overnight travellers they serve. On 28 February 2020, the Government announced that the maximum number of eligible travellers for which cash incentives can be disbursed to a travel agent would be increased from 500 to 1,000, and that the closing of the period of eligible trips (inbound and outbound) would be extended from 31 March 2020 to 31 December 2020 (with the closing of the application period of the Scheme accordingly extended from 15 April 2020 to 15 January 2021).

The Scheme is funded by the Government and comprises two parts, namely inbound travel (administered by the HKTB) and outbound travel (administered by the TIC). The maximum number of eligible travellers for which cash incentives can be disbursed to a travel agent is 1,000, which include inbound travellers (cash incentives of HK$120 each) and outbound travellers (cash incentives of HK$100 each).
