Slovakia launches 3rd stage of aid scheme for tourism sector
Slovakia's Transport Ministry is launching the third stage of aid to the tourism sector under the so-called minimal aid scheme as of Tuesday (Aug 17), Transport Ministry State Secretary Katarína Bruncková announced on Monday, reported state news agency TASR.
As tourism services had to be suspended also in April and May due to COVID-19 restrictions, entities from the sector will be able to apply for aid for those months retroactively.
A drop in revenues of 40% when compared to 2019 remains the basic condition for the provision of aid, with the percentage of aid depending on the amount of the shortfall. According to Bruncková, the ministry has redesigned its website so that it's more comprehensible regarding the aid scheme.
