Poland’s Ministry of Development announced on Twitter that Duda had formally given the plan his seal of approval.

Duda announced the launch of the voucher system himself during a campaign meeting last month in the run-up to an election on Sunday, when he secured a second term in office.

Duda has said he hopes the vouchers will boost the country’s tourism industry, which has been badly hit by the coronavirus crisis.

The credits are intended only for holidays in Poland. Families will be able to use them to cover the cost of a child’s stay at a hotel, guest house, scout camp or a sports camp.

Disabled children will receive an electronic voucher for PLN 1,000.

According to the Ministry of Development, around 6.5 million children under 18 will benefit from the vouchers, which will cost the country PLN 3.5 billion in total, state news agency PAP reported.
