Voucher collection deadline extended

The Government announced today that it will extend the deadline for Octopus card users to tap their cards for collecting consumption vouchers to September 30, 2022.   The original arrangement requires people who collect the vouchers via Octopus to tap their cards to collect the vouchers within three months after the disbursement date of each instalment as the uncollected voucher value will become invalid after the deadline.   Hence, those who were disbursed with the first vouchers on August 1 via Octopus cards must tap their cards to collect the vouchers by October 31.   As a small number of people have not yet tapped their cards to collect the vouchers and in view of the same situation possibly occurring again, the collection period will be extended to September 30, 2022 regardless of batches and instalments.   The arrangement aims to spare the public the need to calculate the collection periods for vouchers disbursed at different times.   This change will not affect the other existing arrangements for disbursing vouchers via Octopus to eligible people, the Government added.   Click here or call 18 5000 to enquire about the Consumption Voucher Scheme.
