Tourism Ministry extends licence renewal fee waiver period for tourism operators

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Tourism Ministry has extended the exemption period for licence renewal fee, as well as additional licences for tourism operators and tourist guides who applied for renewal from July 1 until Dec 31, 2021.

The ministry, in a statement on Monday (June 21), said this was among the initiatives to help ease the burden of tourism industry players who were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

It said that the ministry would also provide the fee exemption to tourism operators and tourist guides who have yet to receive approval for licence renewal due to the lockdown.

The fee exemption is also given to tourism operators and tourist guides who have obtained the approval for licence renewal, but were unable to make the payment due to the lockdown.

"With the extension of the initiative, the ministry hopes that eligible tourism operators and tour guides will take the opportunity to apply for renewal within the stipulated period according to the expiration date of their respective licences, ” the statement read.

The ministry also called on all tourism operators and tour guides to renew their licences within the stipulated period to ensure compliance with existing legislation. - Bernama
