SINGAPORE - From December this year, Singaporeans aged 18 and above will be given $100 worth of vouchers to spend on local attractions, Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing announced at Jurong Bird Park on Wednesday morning (Sept 16).
Here is all you need to know about what these vouchers are for and how you can use them.
The vouchers initiative is part of the Government's efforts to revive local tourism, which has been hit by the Covid-19 pandemic and travel restrictions.
It complements the $45 million SingapoRediscovers marketing campaign, which was launched in July to encourage locals to holiday at home and support local businesses.
About $320 million worth of vouchers will be given out. Adult Singaporeans are given $100 in digital vouchers each and these come in denominations of $10.
This is unclear for now. Details are expected in November.
They can be used at all licensed hotels, leisure attractions and for local tours by operators that have received approval from the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to reopen or resume.
There are no plans to limit the number of vouchers that can be used in a single transaction, or to set out how they should be used. The vouchers can be spread out across separate visits, or used up at once on a staycation package, for example.
They will be accessible via SingPass from December and can be used to offset ticket purchases and hotel stays until the end of June next year.
STB said the redemption of vouchers "will adopt a digital mode by default", but it will provide support for those who have difficulties using such methods.
More details will be announced in November.
