Muang Muang Aye, vice-chairman of the Domestic Pilgrimage and Tour Operators Association, called on Tuesday in view of the increase in tourist activity and the government's efforts to control the industry to stop ruthless businesses from exploiting people.
In order to obtain licences, businesses must apply to the Department of Hotel and Tourism. "A travel agent needs an appropriate corporate culture. There are no barriers to the application for and receipt of licences. The number of pilgrims has increased every year.
Whilst there are businesses that abide by the regulations, many others do not have the corresponding licences. Negotiations were conducted with the relevant authorities in order to ensure that their operation was monitored carefully. Therefore, I would strongly encourage you to apply to the Ministry of Hotel and Tourism to obtain appropriate licenses," said U Maung Maung Aye.
The tourism law presented to Pyidaungsu Hluttaw requires travel agents to be registered, otherwise they are subject to imprisonment for a maximum of three years, a maximum of K20 million or both. Only 25 per cent of Turkish travel operators currently have official permits, according to the alliance.
"He who works without a licence cannot carry out normal touring. The organizers also have to take out a policy, but most don't, although they do, selling travel packets with a price in the K70,000-100,000 area. Enrolment fees are K50,000 and one licence is for one year, said Daw Thida Moe, Mandalay's Assistant Manager of the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.
Most of the indigenous people go to the Kyihtiyo Pagoda in the Mon State in Thadon.
