Tourism Malaysia Wooing Top Spending Travellers From Iran, Oman and Qatar

  • Tourism Malaysia is wooing tourists from West Asia by ramping up its marketing with a roadshow in Iran, Oman, and Qatar from 13 to 21 May 2022.
  • Dato’ Zainuddin Abdul Wahab, Director-General of Tourism Malaysia, said the roadshows will bring Malaysia’s tourism fraternity including travel agents, hoteliers, state tourism bodies, and medical tourism industry players, to the capital cities of Tehran, Muscat and Doha.
  • Tourists from the market dominate the top five international spending in Malaysia in terms of per capita expenditure besides recording longer average lengths of stay compared to tourists from other markets. This is also an opportune time to re-establish partnerships with international airlines such as Qatar Airways, Oman Air, and Mahan Air, which offer direct flights to Kuala Lumpur added Zainuddin.
  • Malaysia has an exciting line-up of new attractions to be explored, including the newly opened Genting Skyworlds Theme Park, the world’s second tallest skyscraper Merdeka 118, and the Sunway Resort in Kuala Lumpur which just reopened after a once-in-a-generation transformation, international travellers worldwide have invented to explore these attractions.
  • Starting 1 May 2022, fully-vaccinated inbound travellers are no longer required to undergo pre-departure and on-arrival COVID-19 tests, including children aged 12 and below as well as for those who have been infected with COVID-19 within six to 60 days before departure to Malaysia. Travel insurance is also not a prerequisite for foreigners entering the country.
  • The wearing of masks outdoors is optional but still mandatory indoors, including in shopping malls, offices, public transportation and e-hailing rides.
