Thailand, Barbados, Cyprus, Abu Dhabi, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Mongolia and Kyrgyzstan are among the latest destinations to join World Travel & Tourism Council’s Safe Travels Stamp program.
Launched 12 months ago, the WTTC’s Safe Travels stamp has now been adopted by over 275 destinations around the world.
The stamp was developed to help restore confidence in travellers and aims to revive the global travel and tourism sector which has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The WTTC Safe Travels stamp, and its global protocols have been embraced by more than 200 Travel & Tourism CEOs, and many of the world’s major tourism groups.
Gloria Guevara, WTTC President & CEO said: “We are delighted that our Safe Travels stamp continues to grow from strength to strength and has been adopted by destinations from all corners of the world.”
Guevara continued: “From Portugal to Puerto Rico, Sri Lanka to Slovenia, Tunisia to Tobago, our stamp is now recognized around the globe, which is testimony to the hard work which has been put in to make the stamp work for both destinations and holidaymakers.”
She pointed out that: “As the global vaccine rollout picks up pace around the world and with travel restrictions beginning to be relaxed, we believe the stamp will prove a key component of destination recovery and restoring consumer confidence.”
