FULLY VACCINATED TOURISM VOUCHERS
Written by TFM on 12/11/2021
ONLY fully vaccinated Territorians will be eligible for tourism vouchers when round four continues next week.
The clampdown comes as the Government continues its push to vaccinate the Territory against Covid-19.
The next stage of the scheme will be released to locals on the waitlist – and vaccination status will be key to securing one of the prized $200 vouchers.
Territorians on the waiting list will be contacted soon to confirm their vaccination status.
They will be required to upload their Covid-19 Australian Government vaccination information to receive their voucher.
Priority will be given to applicants based on the initial registration timing.
Tourism and Hospitality Minister Natasha Fyles said the Government’s priority is protecting vulnerable Territorians and keeping the community safe while supporting tourism operators.
“The requirement to be fully vaccinated will further safeguard vulnerable Territorians throughout our regions and communities,” she said.
“This round of Territory Tourism vouchers has already contributed to more than $4.4m to the Territory economy in gross sales.
“As of 5 November, 14,642 vouchers have been released and 10,125 have been redeemed.”
Territorians who receive a voucher are required to book within 14 days and complete their booking by January 31.
