NTA China Inbound Program – First Deadline March 14

NTA China Inbound Program – First Deadline March 14
March 5, 2008 –Late last week, letters were sent to NTA member tour operators and receptive tour operators announcing the launch of the NTA China Inbound Program. The program facilitates group leisure travel from China to the United States by compiling a list of approved tour operators who are eligible to work with Chinese outbound travel agents.

Any company that wants to be on the first approved list needs to complete an application by MARCH 14. Although the approved tour operator list will be updated on a regular basis, you must have your application into NTA by the close of business on March 14 in order to make it onto the inaugural list.

Since qualification for NTA tour operator membership is a major factor in determining eligibility for the approved list, NTA tour operator members have cleared a significant hurdle. China Inbound Program registration is free to NTA tour operator members.

NTA receptive operators will have to satisfy tour operator membership requirements to get on the approved list and can upgrade to a dual membership. Non-member tour operators also can participate in the program by satisfying NTA membership requirements and paying a registration fee.

If you have any questions about the China Inbound Program or the March 14 deadline, contact Matt Grayson, NTA’s director of industry and government relations, at 800.682.8886, ext. 4250 (U.S. and Canada) or 859.226.4250.
