THE government has agreed to extend the licence fee exemption period for tourism operators and tour guides who have applied for renewal, from tomorrow until December 31.
The Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry (Motac) in a statement today said the decision was made based on the government’s concern towards tourism operators and tour guides who are still affected by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“This initiative is part of the assistance provided by the government to help businesses survive and help companies to rise again following the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Motac.
The ministry also said the fee exemption for licence renewal until December 31 involves 3,419 tour companies, totalling RM5.68 million.
“With the extension of the initiative, Motac hopes that eligible tourism operators and tour guides will take advantage of the opportunity given to apply for renewal within the set period according to the expiration date of their respective licences,” it said.
Previously, the ministry had granted the exemption from January 1 to June 30, 2021, from July 1 to December 31, 2021, and from January 1 to June 30 this year. – Bernama, June 29, 2022.
