The Terengganu tourism sector will be officially opened today (1 Sept) but only individuals who are fully vaccinated will be able to enjoy the privilege.
State Tourism, Culture and Digital Technology Committee chairman Ariffin Deraman said the opening of the tourism sector included popular island resorts like Pulau Kapas in Marang, Pulau Redang in Kuala Nerus, Pulau Tenggol off Dungun and Tasik Kenyir located in Hulu Terengganu.
“Actually the island resorts have been opened since early this month to individuals who have received two doses of Covid-19 vaccine but activities like snorkeling and diving are still not allowed. As a result, many operators decided not to open shop since tourists who go to the islands are actually looking for such activities.
“But beginning Sept 1, these activities will be allowed. However, tourists and those participating in the activities must follow the rules and the standard operating procedures (SOP),” he told reporters after attending a special prayer for the reopening of the tourism sector in Terengganu which is under Phase Two of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).
