Question: Hi, I am based in NYC, USA.

I am very much passionate in starting my own tourism venture. Initially, I would like to start up an inbound tourism venture, and later venture towards the outbound tourism sector. I may not start up an air ticketing agency, but later when I initiate my outbound tour business, I know, I will also have to incorporate the air ticketing agency.

How to Start Home Based Travel and Tourism Business?

I request you to provide me the details of starting up an Inbound tourism venture, and also the following:

  • The contact details of the Regional Tourism office/officer.
  • The requirements of starting up this tourism venture.
  • The minimum requirement of staff.
  • The required qualification of the staff.
  • Any other infrastructure requirements (eg.
    minimum office space, types of vehicles, etc. ) to start up, say,  Inbound tourism venture.
  • The applicable government fees.
  • Any organization that assists with the government departments, in providing the license for setting up the tourism venture.

I look forward to your positive response.

Can you share some good travel business opportunities with me, I know the business is really lucrative, but at the same time it is too competitive also.

    I am planning to start a travel business in HY, I haven’t got much knowledge about the business, I want to open an outlet as well as a website for booking flight tickets.

    1.) How much should be the investment?
    2.) Do I need to register my business?

    I want to make it a long run business. I don’t mind even if I don’t make profits initially. I would really appreciate if anyone can give me information about it.
