More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Travel industry schemes extended

The Government today announced that the application deadlines of the Travel Agents Incentive Scheme and the Green Lifestyle Local Tour Incentive Scheme will be extended for one year to March 31, 2022.   The funding commitment for the Travel Agents Incentive Scheme will be increased by $50 million to about $150 million to further enhance the support for the travel industry.   The Government said with the prolonged impact of the COVID-19 epidemic for more than a year, cross-boundary and local tourism activities have nearly come to a complete halt.   The two incentive schemes were unable to fully perform their role on providing support to the trade.   Extending the two schemes' application deadlines and increasing the funding commitment for the Travel Agents Incentive Scheme will enable the trade to capitalise on the opportunities arising from the gradual resumption of tourism activities in future, providing stimulus for the revival of the travel industry, it added.   The Travel Agents Incentive Scheme provides travel agents with cash incentives of $100 or $120 for each outbound or inbound overnight traveller they serve, with the number of eligible travellers for each travel agent capped at 1,000.   The Green Lifestyle Local Tour Incentive Scheme provides travel agents with cash incentives based on the number of green lifestyle local tour participants they serve, with $200 for each participant and the number of participants that each travel agent can claim capped at 1,000.
