The Democratic Alliance has expressed its
disappointment of the neglect by the Tourism Complaints Officer regarding the
impact the new visa regulations are having on the tourism sector.
DA’s James Vos said it is important that the
tourism industry is protected from overbroad and untested job-killing visa
Vos said these new travel regulations have already
proved serious consequences on our tourism economy and as our brand as a
country of leisure and business tourism.
“And therefore the dismissal of the tourism
compliance officer to ultimately investigate my complaint that these travel
regulations must be suspended and that they must be reviewed, it’s very disappointing
to say the least and I will be considering taking further action because it our
job to protect the tourism industry because ultimately, tourism creates job in
our country” Vos added.
