Due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has gripped the nation, many events have been postponed or cancelled altogether.
One such major event is the Visit Malaysia Year 2020 (VMY2020).
Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nancy Shukri said apart from VMY2020, the Tourism Licensing Division's over-the-counter and online services for VMY2020 has also been frozen.
"It includes 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," she said, as quoted in News Straits Times.
Places offering accomodation remain open
However, she said all tourist accommodations and hotels are allowed to operate, but at a minimum level until the Movement Control Order is called off.
"I appeal to the public to abide by the MCO rules and regulations and to get verified information from official sources.
"Let's pray that the situation will return to normal soon, "she said
We're all praying with Nancy as well.
