The requirements of foreign tourist guides in Boracay are now reduced by the municipal council of Malay.
According to SB Member and Vice Chairman of the Committee on Laws Leal Gelito, they reduced the requirements for the foreign tourist guide and coordinators because some of them are no longer necessary and just a burden for them.
Although the Barangay Clearance and PESO ID remain as requirements as well as with other pertinent documents, Gelito clarified that the removal of the other requirements does not mean that they do not impose strict policies to the foreign tourist guides in Boracay.
Meanwhile, the Local Government Unit of Malay continuously imposes tight policies to tourist guides and coordinators on the island of Boracay in order to prevent them from operating illegally.
