Travel industry permission

If you are a showman, "flying trader" or owner of a market stall, i.e. if you offer your services or goods in constantly changing places, you run a travel business. To do this, you need a travel business card. You must carry them with you in the course of your duties and present them to the representative of the local competent authority upon request. As an employer, you must provide a second copy or a certified copy of the travel trade card to employees in your company who have direct customer contact without your presence or who work in a place other than yourself. If you are an EU citizen working only temporarily across borders, you do not need a travel trade card.
