Tourism Incentive Programme

 Tourism Incentive Programme (TIP)

The Tourism Incentive Programme (TIP) was established by the Department of Tourism during the 2015/16 financial year with the aim of stimulating growth and development in the tourism sector through providing financial assistance to privately owned tourism enterprises.

The pilot phase saw the introduction of the Market Access Support Programme and the Tourism Grading Support Programme as two sub-programmes to support small tourism enterprises in gaining greater access to markets, and encourage participation in the tourism grading system respectively. These programmes have since been revised and refined, while two additional programmes, the Green Tourism Incentive Programme and the Tourism Transformation Fund were added in 2017 and 2018 respectively to support the responsible tourism and transformation objectives of the department.
