KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 31 — The Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry (Motac) has once again agreed to extend the licence fee exemption period for tourism operators and tour guides who applied for renewal from Jan 1 to June 30, 2022. Motac, in a statement today, said the decision was made to assist industry players affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. THE Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry has agreed to extend the licence fee exemption period for tourism companies that applied for renewal from January 1 to June 30, 2022. It said that the fee exemption was also given to tourism operators and tour guides who have yet to receive approval for licence renewal, and those who have obtained the approval but were unable to make the payment due to the National Recovery Plan. With long isolation times and close contact rules causing staff disruptions to public transport, retail and hospitality, the government cut the isolation period to seven days from 10 for people who have tested positive but have received a booster vaccine or been infected within the previous three months. In this regard, the ministry hoped that the eligible parties would take the opportunity to apply for renewal within the set period according to the expiration date of their respective licences. Effective July 2018, access to full reports will only be available with a subscription. “Motac also calls on all tourism operators and tour guides to renew their licences within the stipulated period to ensure compliance with the existing legislation,” it added. The coronavirus pandemic has ravaged English football’s fixture list, leaving some clubs needing to play catch-up, but 2021 will end with City out on their own.

According to the statement, the licence renewal fee exemption involved 2,219 tourism companies amounting to RM1,646,100. If the rapid tests are repeatedly negative, any symptomatic people in that age bracket should continue to self-isolate until 48 hours after their symptoms have resolved. Prior to this, the ministry had granted the fee exemption from Jan 1 to June 30, 2021 and from July 1 to Dec 31, 2021. — Bernama You May Also Like .
