Amendment to the Circular on the Controlled Normalization Process in Accommodation Facilities

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism issued the 'Safe Tourism Certificate', which it had previously required for hotels with 50 rooms or more in the relevant circular; 30 rooms or more changed to hotels. Thus, the hotels between 30-50 rooms, which can continue their activities without obtaining a certificate, are obliged to obtain the said certificate.
