What Is The Main Procedure To Be Come An Iata Agent?

Postby Ain » Tue Oct 10, 2017 11:12 am

below are the requirements and the links. i believe there were links to schools/classes as well.

they would be able to give you even more info.

the 2nd link gives basically the same info, but with some additions.

it is the iatan homepage.

both links are for the US, i believe, but number 6 below states that once accepted, the license gives you international recognition.

there are other links that can be found that may give additional information.

1--Produce proof that you are working for a legally registered travel agency, or if you work independently, that your business is legal. Submit all relevant business licenses, tax forms and insurance records. Include documentation of all local and state licensing.

2--Provide financial records showing the fiscal solvency of your travel agency. Bring a copy of all bank transactions, organized neatly and in chronological order. Make a copy of your business plan and include it to show that you are adhering to your budget plans.

3--Show evidence of your commitment to the travel industry. Present your sales records showing your achievements in selling airline tickets, hotel arrangements, individual and group tours. Enter all your sales totals into a spreadsheet and present the information in a clear and understandable format.

4--Prepare copies of all insurance policies covering your work as a travel agent, including errors and omissions insurance. This requirement may be waived if you have five years experience as a travel agent. If you wish to waive this insurance requirement, you must provide proof of your five years of work experience.

5--Pay the required accreditation fee, which is $165 if you are self-employed or work for a private agency. The fee is $360 if you work for a corporate travel department. Pay the accreditation fee in U.S. dollars.

6--Receive your full accreditation as a licensed IATA travel agent. Get a letter with the date you received accreditation, an official IATA Certificate of Accreditation, an IATA window decal to display at your agency, and your unique IATA numeric code, which gives you international recognition as a licensed IATA travel agent.
