GP0035's picture

The new Tourism Act of 2014 has now been signed into law and has been published .
The Major issues for us as Tourist guides are the following.
1. Registration period is now 3 years
2. The clause about driverguiding with 10 or more seats have completely been removed from the ACT but will possibly come into the regulations which are to be finalised
3. With the new law we need to be SAQA compliant which is higher than Casstheta , thus universities are now also included for registration
4. The fine for an operator using unregistered Tourist Guides is pushed up to Max R100000.00

Well fellow guides keep yourself informed , all other tourism laws have been repealed

For a good few years now I have been waiting for my certification of National Tour Guide since I was successfully assessed by Gold Reef Guides in as far back as 2004. I have sent numerous emails to CASSTHETA in this regard and am now ready to re-register and will come across problems when I do in 2015 Please help?

No redoing of qualifications are necessary

No redoing of qualifications are necessary

Casstheta/theta Fall under SAQA so all qualifications stay relevant
