If any travel agency wants to handle visa or recruitment, it has to take separate licence for doing those ideas
The Bangladesh Travel Agency (Registration and Regulation) (Amendment) Bill, 2020 has been positioned in parliament keeping a provision of maximum six months' imprisonment or Tk5 lakh fine or both regarding violation of any provision beneath the proposed law.
State Minister for Civil Aviation and Tourism Md Mahbub Ali located the bill on Monday and it had been delivered to the respective scrutiny committee for further examination.
The committee was asked to submit its report within a month.
The bill includes a provision saying that a travel agency can renew its licence within six months even after the expiry of the stipulated time paying penalty, can open branch offices at home and abroad, and give its ownership.
It says if any travel agency works as a recruiting agency, it will be an offence and the travel agency will be fined for doing this.
If any travel agency really wants to cope with visa or recruitment, it has to take separate licence for doing those ideas.
