Business travel - interstate or international

This Stream provides funding under the Industry Development Guidelines for up to 50% of the cost of travel, accommodation and entrance fees (if applicable) to attend business related interstate or international market events, market meetings or festivals and awards ceremonies with a significant market component.

Applicants can apply for per diems of up to $60 per day for interstate travel and $100 per day for international travel.  An overall cap of $6 000 for international and $ 2000 for domestic travel per individual, each financial year can be available. A company may apply for up to $10 000 for all types of business travel per financial year, but the caps of $6 000 international and $2 000 domestic still apply to each person travelling for that company.

Support is dependent on the availability of funds and COVID-19 restrictions.
