Technicians from the Ministry of Tourism, Brazil continue to inspect lodgings throughout Brazil to make providers aware of the importance of registering with Cadastur (Register of Tourism Service Providers). This week, the teams were in Gramado and Canela (RS), cities that receive more than six million tourists every year.
In three days of inspection, 83 hotels and inns from both municipalities were visited and notified by the agents to provide regularization in the MTur system. The technical visits were preceded by remote work that notified 125 service providers in the municipalities. In total, 208 lodgings were inspected.
Lodging facilities are among the obligatory tourist services in Cadastur. Currently, 692 establishments are registered in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, 126 in Gramado and 38 in Canela.
In addition to assuring guests to hire a formalized service at the Ministry of Tourism, the registration of means of accommodation contributes to the categorization of destinations in the Brazilian Tourism Map. Gramado, for example, is a category “A” destination that represents the capitals and municipalities with the largest tourist flow, the largest number of establishments, jobs and federal tax collection in the lodging sector.
Most Ministry of Tourism programs and actions targeting municipalities and entrepreneurs, such as project financing, require the Cadastur number. In addition to ensuring several advantages and business opportunities, the Tourism Service Provider Register is also an important source of consultation for tourists, with more than 90,000 service providers.
