Sponsored Travel

Section 7 The Members’ Conflict of Interest Act

Sponsored travel (travel paid for in whole or in part by a third party) is only acceptable under certain circumstances; for example, if no commercial option is available or if required in order to participate in a genuine fact finding tour.

Sponsored travel is considered a gift and the same rules for acceptability and disclosure apply.

For further guidance and interpretation on this topic, see Sponsored Travel Information Bulletin for Members.
