The Tourism, Arts and Culture Ministry of Malaysia has cancelled the ongoing Visit Malaysia Year 2020 (VMY2020) campaign due to the Covid-19 epidemic.

 

Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said that the VMY2020 campaign was cancelled due to the impact of Covid-19 on the local and international tourism sector.

 

“This is effective immediately,” Shukri said in a statement on Wednesday, March 18.
She also announced freezing all over-the-counter and online services for the ministry’s Tourism Licensing Division.

 

“These include the ministry’s state offices concerning tourism licensing such as tour guides, tour drivers, tourism training institutes, and the registration of tourism accommodation premises, rated spa centres, and foot massage centres, until March 31,” said Shukri .

 

She added that aligned with the statement made by the National Security Council, Prime Minister’s Department regarding movement control order (MCO), all tourist accommodations will be permitted to operate at a minimum level.

 

The MCO period will be effective for two weeks from March 18 to 31.

 

“All guests at said premises must remain in their rooms for the quarantine period, but are allowed to order food through room service. Check-ins at tourist accommodation will also be permitted, but on a small and limited scale,” Shukri said.

 

“Let us all pray for the betterment of the country until the situation returns to normal immediately,” added Shukri .
