The NSW Government is helping the visitor economy bounce back from COVID-19 restrictions with the opening of business registrations for the Stay NSW voucher program and the launch of the new Parents NSW Vouchers.
The new vouchers are a double win – encouraging people to get out and enjoy the best of NSW, while also providing much needed income to businesses affected by the pandemic.
Accommodation, recreation and entertainment businesses such as cultural institutions, live music and arts venues will benefit from this support.
All NSW households where a school-enrolled child resided in 2021 can now apply for five $50 Parents NSW Vouchers.
Multiple Parents NSW Vouchers can be used in the same transaction up to $250 in total. Vouchers can also be combined by two or more adults from different households.
Stay NSW Vouchers will be progressively rolled out from late February, providing NSW residents aged 18 and older with a $50 voucher to spend at registered accommodation providers.
Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said that with millions of vouchers to be issued to NSW residents soon, businesses should get ready to boost their income by registering for both programs.
“Whether you’re a hotel in Sydney, motel in rural NSW or a holiday park on a coastal town, we want you to take advantage of this stimulus and see more customers come through your doors,” Mr Dominello said.
Registered Discover NSW and Stay NSW businesses do not need to register again to accept Parents NSW Vouchers.
Eligible new businesses are encouraged to register for Stay NSW and Discover NSW. Once approved, businesses can download the Service NSW for Business app and get ready to accept vouchers. For help with business registration call Service NSW on 13 77 88 or book a call with a Business Concierge.
