KUCHING, Feb 25: Members of the public are required to check-in with the MySejahtera app at every booth when visiting the four-day Citrawarna Keluarga Malaysia 2022 programme at Kuching Waterfront.
The advice came from Federal Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Dato Sri Nancy Shukri following a case where an exhibitor was compounded after he failed to check-in with MySejahtera when entering another booth yesterday.
“We do not want similar cases to happen and affect the Citrawarna programme due to misunderstanding on the application of standard operating procedures (SOPs).
“Therefore, our officers have informed everyone to scan the MySejahtera QR code upon entering every booth at the programme,” she said at a press conference after visiting the programme site today.
Nancy further shared that visitors have began queuing up to get their visitor’s pass last night at the booths, implying that the public are aware of the SOPs put in place.
She mentioned that only those above the age of 12 and those who have completed the first two doses of the Covid-19 vaccination would be allowed entry.
Nancy further said that the programme, which is held from Feb 24 to Feb 27, was targeting to attract 50,000 visitors into the State, adding a positive sign that all the hotels in Kuching were fully-booked.
She said this was an indication that many were anticipating the event, especially when Sarawak is playing host for the first time for the annual national programme. — DayakDaily
