Arrangements for Octopus users under 2023 Consumption Voucher Scheme
     The 2023 first-instalment consumption vouchers will be disbursed on April 16 to the stored value facility accounts of successful registrants under last year's scheme.
     The Government spokesman today (March 22) said that for members of the public using Octopus to collect vouchers, the voucher will be disbursed in mid-April to the same Octopus card they used for receiving vouchers last year. Nevertheless, records indicate that about 20 000 persons who used Octopus to receive vouchers last year have returned the relevant Octopus card to Octopus Cards Limited without updating their account for receiving vouchers. The Government would like to remind them to update their account by the deadline of next Wednesday (March 29) online, by post or in person to one of the eight temporary service centres (the addresses, opening dates and hours are listed at the Annex) in order to receive the voucher on April 16. If the Octopus card used for collecting vouchers last year is still valid, they can continue to use the same card to receive the new voucher instalment without the need to go through any procedure.
     For elderly people who have applied for the JoyYou card and have returned their original Octopus card, but have not yet updated their account for receiving vouchers, they can also call the Octopus hotline 2969 5588 to make an amendment for using the JoyYou card for receiving vouchers. In cases where their Octopus card used for receiving vouchers last year is still valid, elderly people who have applied for the JoyYou card may continue to use their original card for receiving vouchers without the need to go through any procedure or switch to the JoyYou card to receive the vouchers.
     Members of the public may browse the Consumption Voucher Scheme website (www.consumptionvoucher.gov.hk) or call hotline 18 5000 for details of the 2023 Consumption Voucher Scheme.
