Development Fund for the Travel Industry

The Fund aims to enhance the overall competitiveness of the local travel industry through subsidizing the training and promotional activities beneficial to travel agents.

1) There are two categories of eligible training activities: (i) courses and examinations; and (ii) seminars, workshops, talks, etc, both of which must not entirely held outside Hong Kong or online.

All member travel agents of the Travel Industry Council (TIC) which hold a valid travel agent’s licence are eligible to apply for subsidy, and may nominate their own staff members (including their employees and self-employed persons) to take part in eligible training activities in order to receive subsidy.

All Tour Escort Pass Holders (accredited tour escorts) / Tourist Guide Pass Holders (accredited tourist guides) may also take part in eligible training activities in order to receive subsidy. The Working Group on Development Fund for the Travel Industry has approved certain lists of training activities as attached in the funding website. Since the lists will be reviewed by the Working Group on a regular basis, the eligibility of any training activities is subject to the latest lists.

2)  Eligible promotional activities must be open to all member travel agents of the TIC which hold a valid travel agent's licence under the Travel Agents Ordinance. Any activities aimed at promoting the business of individual travel agents are ineligible. The funding website has already listed out all eligible applicant organisations
