The two categories of hotels that they inspect are first, hotel projects that are approved at the implementation stage and secondly, the operational hotels which are classified into various categories. About the former, the Ministry of Tourism after certain documentation provides project approvals that shall remain valid for five years. Once the hotel reaches its operative stage, the approval ceases to exist within three months. The respective hotel must apply for the classification during these three months. Once the classification is obtained, it becomes valid for 5 years.
