The card can be activated within 12 months after purchase. The card can be activated by scanning the QR code or manually entering the card's information during the first visit of a museum or during a sightseeing tour. The card is invalid if the date the card holder started using it is not specified on the other side, which the holder must fill in. The card offers free or discounted tours the tourism promotion program covers in addition to discounts from the program's partners as specified by the guide book and the website.
The card is also used as a digital pass for paying for urban transportation. The card allows unlimited travels by urban transport within the time limit specified by the card.
