E-Visa To Boost Travel and Tourism in Malaysia: Ken Research

Posted on 21 October 2016 by KenResearch Media and Entertainment ,

  • Malaysia is forecasted to meet 36 million tourists target by 2020 and bring in revenue of USD 52.4 billion
  • Inbound trips, domestic trips and international trips are expected to grow over the forecast period.

Ken Research announced its latest publication on, “Travel and Tourism in Malaysia to 2020” which discusses detailed analysis of tourists spending patterns on different categories such as hotels, food, accommodation and travel.  Report also contains the consumer trends and the major drivers in the tourism industry describing the market penetration and future potential of industry. In addition, detailed distribution and packaging data in the report enables the reader to interpret future outlook on how the market will shape up by the end of this decade.

Malaysia registered millions of tourists and received huge receipts as earnings in 2014. It was the second largest resource for influx of foreign exchange to the country but there came a turning point in the tourism industry and there was a drop in country’s foreign exchange reserves. Malaysia witnessed two air tragedies which involve flight MH370 which disappeared in March and flight MH17 was shot down on July 17. After these accidents, tourists do not have same enthusiasm for a tour to Malaysia and they started choosing other destinations over Malaysia. Also the negative publicity regarding security by foreign media caused a huge loss to tourism industry in 2015. There was a significant drop in number of tourists from 2014 to 2015. However, market is expected to grow and recover in 2016, and major reason could be depreciation of Malaysian currency. Depreciation of Malaysian currency is helping tourists to roam in Malaysia at lower cost.

Tourism is supporting the growth of various sectors. Hotel industry and transport intermediaries are reaping the maximum benefits. It is creating both wealth and employment resulting in growth of Malaysian economy. Every country is promoting its tourism industry to increase its reserve of foreign exchanges as a result there is a divergence of tourists from Malaysia to other economies thus decline in tourists arrivals. Malaysian outbound trips and domestic trips captured a satisfactory share in 2015.

In 2016, Malaysian government launched e-Visa programme.  Malaysia is expecting half of the tourists from China and this e-Visa programme is the initial step to help achieve the goal and for the development and expansion of tourism industry. Additionally, Malaysia has announced its new tourism ambassador, Shila Amzah to boost arrivals from china. She has won the hearts of the Chinese after becoming the champion of Asian Wave (a Chinese show). Also, Malaysian government announced a visa-waiver programme for Chinese tourists in expectation of influx of tourists. Under this programme, Chinese can visit Malaysia for not more than 15 days.

Colombia’s Travel & Tourism sector is crucial to its economy. The sector has consistently increased its contribution to the GDP. Presently the sector contributes around 2.2% to the GDP. The spectacular growth of the Tourism sector in Colombia has even outpaced the global tourism growth rates as well as the average tourism growth rate of all the South American countries. With rich and diverse geography as well as unique biodiversity, Colombia has a great potential for eco-tourism as well. Some of the popular places to visit in Colombia include:Bogota, Cartagena, Medellin, Amazon and the Andean regions; the Caribbean & Pacific Coasts; the desert of La Guajira etc.

Looking at the present scenario, Colombia’s tourism sector is growing with strong growth rates. Two key events influencing the tourism sector in the country are: Home currency depreciation &improved safety on account of signing off ceasefire agreement between the govt. and the FARC rebels. Improved safety has positively affected the growth of the sector. While weakening of the peso has significantly changed the consumer preferences over domestic, inbound & outbound trips. Due to weak peso Colombians are turning to domestic trips over outbound trips. Also, as a result of weak peso, inbound tourism has witnessed remarkable growth over last few years: 8.2% in 2013, 7.4% in 2014, and 16.3% in 2015. International arrivals, largely from US and Venezuela, totalled 2.3 million in 2015. Outbound tourism has been suffering as a result of falling value of peso. Outbound trips declined by -1.3% in 2015 while expenditure declined by -0.6%.

Government also plays an important role in the tourism sector. As for example, introduction of the new tax policy which exempts foreign tourist from paying sales tax on tourism related services; construction plan of new airports while renovating and expanding the existing ones; are totally government efforts for developing the tourism sector in Colombia. However, high congestion at airports urging the immediate construction and expansion of the airport capacity will be a serious challenge to the government as well as for the overall tourism sector.

Key Factors Driving Growth in Colombia’s Travel & Tourism Sector

The strong performance of the Travel & Tourism sector in Colombia over the last several years is due to various factors influencing the demand-side dynamics offering vast growth opportunities to the market players and encouraging them to strategize their business actions accordingly. This ultimately leads to expansion and development of the overall tourism sector. Since, Tourism sector is a crucial part of a country’s economy, hence, government participation through increased investment in tourism related development plans has also played a crucial role in the growth of the sector.

Key factors driving growth in Colombia’s Travel & Tourism sector include:

  • Depreciation of home currency

Weakening of Peso has significantly influenced consumer preferences over domestic, inbound & outbound trips. Colombians have turned to domestic trips; hence, declining international departures have led to negative outbound tourism growth.  On the other hand, inbound tourism has witnessed impressive growth.

  • Improved Safety

Signing of the ceasefire agreement between Colombian Govt. & the FARC rebels to end the 50 years conflict is expected to have a significant impact on international arrivals.

  • New Tax Policy

Govt. aiming to enhance the tourism sector outlook has introduced a new tax policy which exempts foreign tourists from the 16% sales tax (VAT) on tourism-related services. This will further boost the rising inbound trips.

  • Airport Capacity Expansion &Increasing flights to Colombia

To reduce congestion at airports, govt. has come up with various plans of construction of new airports. Also, the number of domestic as well as international flights to Colombia has been increasing over years. These factors greatly support the tourism sector growth.

  • Great Potential for Eco-tourism

With very rich and diverse geography, including the Amazon and the Andean regions; the Caribbean & Pacific Coasts; the desert of La Guajira etc. along with the presence of unique biodiversity, Colombia has great potential for eco-tourism.

Future of Colombia’s Travel & Tourism Sector

Starting from a relatively low base, tourism sector has shown remarkable performance and is expected to continue with the spectacular growth over several coming years outpacing the tourism market in the South American region. Weakening of the peso and improved safety will play a crucial role in driving tourism sector growth over the coming years. Other factors will reinforce the growth momentum. Weak peso will continue to support domestic and inbound tourism growth while leading to decline in outbound tourism growth. Over the forecast period, domestic trip are projected to grow at an average annual rate of 5.7%, to reach 32.6 million domestic trips by 2020; inbound tourism is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% to reach 3.2 million international arrivals by 2020; and declining outbound tourism is expected to reach 5.1 million by 2020.

The construction of new airports as well as expansion of the existing ones will reduce congestion at airports and also serve in accommodating the rising international arrivals. The implementation of the sales tax exemption policy for foreigners on tourist related services will lead to further rise in inbound trips.

Thus, we can say that Colombia is increasingly focusing on their tourism sector growth so as to firmly establish the country as a leading international tourist destination on the global platform.
