The Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA), the national umbrella representative body for the entire travel industry in Malaysia, and Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspection and certification, have signed an agreement to deploy the “Travel Safe Malaysia” Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label, designed to support the operational restart activities of the travel and tour industry.
MATTA has over 3,600 members operating comprising local tour and travel companies and numerous overseas affiliations, as well as working closely with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC) and Tourism Malaysia. Since its inception in 1975, MATTA promotes the interests of the travel and tour industry in Malaysia by organising fairs, seminars, convention and workshops both to create public awareness of the tourism industry as well as to benefit its members.
The “Travel Safe Malaysia” programme is supported by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture (MOTAC), and will be offered to all MATTA members across Malaysia through field audits to ensure that appropriate health, safety and hygiene procedures and processes are in place and in line with globally recognized best practices and recommendations related to preventive measures for a safer business restart after the COVID-19 lockdown period.
