Knowledge and regulations on Travel Agencies of China
Travel agency types
Before new regulations were formed, there were mainly 3 kinds of travel agencies in China: Travel service for domestic travel, travel service for Chinese inbound travel and travel service for Chinese outbound travel. Travel agencies who had registered as certain kind should not operate other kinds of travel services.
Now according to the New Regulations on the Administration of Tourism Agencies made by China National Tourism Administration, there is only one kind of travel agency, any of these travel agencies can operate Chinese inbound travel or domestic travel, and outbound travel too if the company haven’t received punishment of government for continuous two years time.
Travel agencies are directly administrated by local tourism bureaus while these bureaus are attributed to China National Tourism Administration (CNTA). CNTA is the tourism policies and regulations maker and statistics distributor. Regulations on Administration of Tourism Agencies are formulated by CNTA.
Local government, local tourism supervisory authorities and local consumer associations perform supervisory duties.
Travel Agencies should pay the deposit of RMB200,000 for domestic and inbound tourism services and RMB1.4 million for domestic, inbound and outbound all three tourism services to local tourism bureaus. There are a series of regulations on the administration of travel agencies. Those who violated these regulations would be punished with fining, warning, business suspension, cancellation of the license or criminal penalties.
