The Department of Tourism has published the Tourism Amendment Bill and is asking for your comment in shaping this policy.
If you’re an Airbnb host you might be prevented from renting out your property for as long as you like. If you are a guest/potential guest you might face increased costs and limited choice.
Important to note; this is not a petition but is a legally protected policy-shaping process mandated under the SA Constitution. Your comment is immediately sent as a unique email to the designated government representative and must, by law, be acknowledged and considered. Had this been a petition, all comments would be seen as a single collective submission.
By using DearSA’s service you ensure an accurate record is held by civil society (on DearSA’s encrypted database) so government cannot dispute participation facts or figures. This process forms a solid foundation for a legal case should the necessity arise.
