Ministry of Hotel & Tourism, Myanmar, has recently explained that it will vaccinate all the staff members related to tourism and hospitality to allow hotels and guesthouses across the country to reopen their businesses without fear.

In a top-level meeting with travel association chiefs and representatives last Tuesday, 10 August, the ministry said reopening hotels and guesthouses would need to comply with existing Covid-19 regulations established by the NLD government when it was still in power last December.

The ministry has also requested the tourism associations to help in creating the lists of qualified people associated with tourism. 20th August is the deadline that has been set for people to apply.

“Various departments in the Nay Pyi Taw region, state and townships across the country will distribute the jabs once staff employed by Myanmar Tourism Federation member companies are registered,” the ministry explained.

To 12 travel and hospitality associations letter has been issued, the office of the ministry’s director-general has named the lists that should be emailed to and (Hotels & Tourism department) not later than 20 August 2021.

Tourism workers most likely will get a Chinese vaccine recently purchased by the military junta. Astra Zeneca vaccines purchased from India by the NLD government back in January 2021 have by now been distributed to adults 60-plus and some hospitality staff members as well.
