Illegal Commissioners, still a dilemma for DOT

Written by Gloria Villas

The increasing number of illegal commissioners on the island of Boracay is still a dilemma for the Department of Tourism.

According to DOT Boracay Officer-in-Charge Tim Ticar, the said issue is considered a headache for the agency as uncertified commissioner increase in number everyday and goes about deceiving foreign and local tourists.

More so that it is the holiday season and more tourists are expected to flood Boracay.

In line with this, Ticar calls upon the local government to rigorously implement the regulation against illegal commissioners.

Meanwhile, the DOT OIC advised the guests to be cautious particularly to those who don’t have any proper documentation.

Ticar added, it would be better if they visit the DOT’s office, so that they themselves will show or suggests the best activities in the island.
