Vouchers are worth USD36 each, eligible to pay for trips, stays at hotels, sight visits, and more
In hopes to boost the economy amid the pandemic, Taiwan’s government announced last Friday that it would issue 1.2 million travel vouchers valued at NTD1,000 (USD36.08) each, reported Taiwan News.
Beginning October 12, the coupons will be awarded via a draw every Tuesday at 10.30 a.m. for four consecutive weeks.
The Tourism Bureau mentioned at a news conference that each will have 300,000 winners.
Benefits that these vouchers cover include payments for trips, stays at hotels, treatments at hot springs, and visits to sights.
Registrations for the draws will be available from September 22 to October 29, with the use of the vouchers valid from November 1 until April 30, 2022.
According to the Tourism Bureau, the sooner people register, the more chances they have of winning a voucher.
The coupons are also available in digital form, but neither form will change be given.
The government forecasted that if 2.4 million people use the vouchers, NTD5.8 billion (USD208 million) will be injected into the tourism sector. Along with other subsidy measures, the total benefit to the industry should hit NTD12.4 billion (USD446 million).
These travel coupons come on top of several other promotional schemes, counting the “Quintuple Stimulus Vouchers” worth NTD5,000 (USD180) per person.
