Government enhances Green Lifestyle Local Tour Incentive Scheme
     ​The Government announced today (October 28) enhancements to the Green Lifestyle Local Tour Incentive Scheme (the Scheme) to further support the tourism industry.

     In April 2022, the Government launched the second phase of the Scheme under the Anti-epidemic Fund to provide cash incentives to travel agents based on the number of green lifestyle local tour participants they served, in a bid to encourage the public to get close to nature, enhance the promotion of green tourism, as well as support tourism and related sectors. Considering that the tourism industry is constantly affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, the Government will enhance the Scheme in a bid to further support the travel trade to cope with the continued difficult business environment and encourage the trade to get prepared for the return of visitors. The enhanced Scheme will be implemented from December 1, 2022. Details are as follows:

(1) provide each licensed travel agent with a fresh quota of 1 000 green lifestyle local tour participants;
(2) increase the subsidy level for receiving each local tour participant from $200 to $300; and
(3) expand the scope of eligible green lifestyle local tour participants to include non-Hong Kong residents.

     Application details of the Scheme are available at the website of the Travel Industry Council of Hong Kong (www.tichk.org).
