Large event organisers asked to hold off on waiver applications
People looking to put on functions for more than 100 guests are being asked not to submit applications until next Monday, June 28.
A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Youth, Culture and Sport, which has taken over responsibility for granting exemptions from the national security ministry, said: “Prospective applicants should note that the online application form is currently being updated to expedite processing.
“The new form will be in effect by June 28. Therefore, applicants are encouraged to defer submitting applications until that date as the process will be clearer and faster.“
Under the guidelines, a maximum of 100 people are allowed to gather.
Requests for group gatherings larger than 100 people must be applied for through the online form and submitted at least ten business days in advance of the date of the event.
