The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has issued a new update. following the announcement earlier in August that over S$320 million has been set aside for Singaporeans to use on local attractions. Singaporeans aged 18 and above will receive $100 worth of local tourism vouchers.

These $100 SingapoRediscovers tourism vouchers will come in $10 denominations, and will be issued via SingPass. They will also be eligible for use on selected local attractions, staycations and tours from December 2020 to end-June next year.

All licensed hotels, tourist attractions and tours that have been approved by the STB to operate or reopen can benefit from this scheme. You can refer to the list of approved hotels here.

A jab in the arm for local tourism

Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing said the move will help the local tourism industry, which has been battered by COVID-19.

“This is not a social assistance scheme. This is an economic scheme to help our tourist attractions to preserve their capabilities that have been built up over the years, while they consolidate capacity in the interim,” Mr Chan told reporters at the Jurong Bird Park. As we seize the opportunity to explore Singapore again, do note that as the eligibility period includes a few school holidays, we should try to avoid rushing to spend the $100 tourism vouchers in December.
