KUALA LUMPUR: Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said locals will be fully exempted from paying the much talked about Tourism Tax.

Foreign tourists, however, will be charged a flat rate of RM10 per night for all types of hotels.
Nazri said this at Parliament today while responding to a question from Anthony Loke (DAP - Seremban).

The tax was initially set to see rates of between RM2.50 to RM20 charged for a night's stay.
