Spending receipts issued since 10 December will remain eligible. 

The third round of “Spend-to-Redeem Local Tours” registration initially set on 3 January is postponed until further notice due to the pandemic, the Hong Kong Tourism Board announced.

The Tourism Board said that any machine-printed spending receipts since 10 December will remain eligible for redemption for local tours when the programme is relaunched.

“The public may keep the receipts for participating in the programme later,” it said.

Under the programme, anyone who spends $800 at a physical dining or shopping outlet in the city can redeem spending receipts for a quota in a local tour.

HKTB said it will closely monitor the pandemic situation and launch the campaign in a “timely manner as safety and hygiene were top priority.
