Western Cape tourist guide registration system goes online

Western Cape government launched a new online system to make it easier for the 5,000 tourist guides in the Western Cape to register, renew and update their details.

Until now, tourist guides have had to complete application forms in hard copy or via email, but now the new online registration system provides them with the opportunity to register or create a profile, search the knowledge base of resources, give feedback, ask a question and chat with an agent.

Access to the tourist guide registration system is through the Western Cape Government eService portal.

‘With the re-opening of inter-provincial travel under Alert Level 2, our tourist guides play an important role in welcoming visitors to the Western Cape and ensuring they have a great experience and keep coming back,’ DA Minister of Finance and Economic Opportunities David Maynier said in a statement.
