Tourism Malaysia (TM) has planned to intensify its promotion in India’s Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities taking advantage of the Indian government’s move to simplify the travel (passport) process for its nationals.
Speaking to Bernama in conjunction with the South Asia Travel and Tourism Exchange (SATTE) travel fair in New Delhi, Tourism Malaysia International Promotion Division senior director Musa Yusof said TM had already identified cities, other than Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Chennai, to promote Malaysia as a family leisure and shopping destination.
He said, these cities have potential as the next growth areas, where Indians can receive their passports within a week, compared to one to two months previously.
Other than traditional destinations in Peninsula Malaysia, TM would also step up efforts to promote tourist destinations in Sabah and Sarawak.
A member of TM’s Board of Directors, Daljit Singh Dalliwal who headed the Malaysian delegation to the 23th edition of SATTE, said 63 million Indians hold valid passports and are therefore considered potential tourists to Malaysia.
