Se reglamentó la Ley de Guías de Turismo de Tucumán

Professional and suitable tourist guides will be able to integrate a registry that will formalize the provision of the service in the Province.

A few days before the end of 2021, the province's tourist guides already have the regulations of Law No. 9,381 , regulations sanctioned by the Honorable Legislature of Tucumán on December 22, 2020, with the aim of regulating the activity of the providers of these services. The approval was the result of three years of efforts promoted by the Tucuman Tourism Authority (EATT) with the contributions of the Tucuman Association of Tourism Guides and the Tucuman College of Tourism Graduates .    

“With great joy and before the end of the year, as we promised, we regulate the Law of Tourism Guides. This is an achievement, it is the result of consensus and it is already a fact ”, stated the president of EATT, Sebastian Giobellina , about this event. The official invited the guides to pass through the offices of the provincial body "to carry out the procedures that will allow them to carry out their tasks within the framework of the law," he emphasized.

Giobellina explained that "for the regulation the contributions and observations made by both institutions were taken, which are the result of the numerous meetings that we carry out with all the intervening entities," he stressed. It should be noted that at the time the law was enacted, the official had weighed in on this decision "which translates into the recognition of many workers who have been doing very valuable work for years," the Minister of Tourism had expressed a year ago.

The Law seeks to order the exercise of this activity through the creation of a formal registry of guides. To enroll in it and in any of its categories, interested parties must meet the following requirements:

- Complete, sign and submit the Affidavit form.
- Present a copy of the National Identity Document (DNI) and 2 passport-type photos in 4x4 size.
- Present a certificate of Good Conduct issued by the Police of the Province of Tucumán or by the National Registry of Recidivism (in case of not residing in the province).
- Present the Curriculum Vitae with the respective documentation that supports their background in the activity.
- Prove your real address in the Province of Tucumán or, failing that, establish a special address in it and declare your electronic address.
- Proof of registration in AFIP and DGR or proof of dependency relationship.
- Accredit proof of training in a first aid course given by the competent authority.
