What documentation do I need to operate an accommodation establishment for non-leisure purposes under Alert Level 3?
According to the Minister of Tourism:
- You will no longer need a letter from the Minister of Tourism
- You will not be required to have a certificate or a letter from anyone
- You will be required to keep a list of people that are in your establishment and ensure that they are not coming into your establishment for leisure purposes
- The National Department of Tourism will be doing inspections of accommodation establishments, and you will be accountable as the owner of the facility
Accommodation services for quarantine or isolation purposes will still need to be approved by the Department of Health. If you have queries about this please email email@example.com.
