A Safe Travels stamp is awarded by the WTTC to those destinations that sustain a globally standardized set of COVID-era health and safety code of behavior.
Turks and Caicos, Kazakhstan, Iceland, Colombia, and Argentina have been added to WTTC’s list recently. They are the latest major destinations to accept the World Travel & Tourism Council’s international safety and hygiene stamp.
The Safe Travels stamp aims to revive an ailing Travel & Tourism sector and was developed as an example to help to re-establish confidence in travelers. This stamp permits travelers to find which destinations around the world have accepted standardized global health and hygiene code of behavior, to experience “Safe Travels”.
WTTC President & CEO, Gloria Guevara mentions that they are undeniably pleased with the success of their Safe Travels stamp. She also adds that more than 145 destinations are now proudly using the stamp and are working together to help to rebuild consumer confidence internationally.
As the stamp continues to grow, tourists will be able to recognize destinations around the world which have adopted these important international standardized code of behavior more easily and encourage them to “Safe Travel” around the world.
The tourism industry is starting to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and people feel like traveling again. Therefore, tourism companies must be ready to welcome their guests and customers in a safe and responsible approach. International collaboration with harmonized guidelines is essential and helps to achieve this aim, to restore the public’s confidence in the tourism sector for future travel.
While the world is shifting to a “new normal” and the industry is seeing an incredible transformation, tourism industry strongly believes in forming a single voice for the businesses and governments to be heard. Consumers across the globe are requiring safety and comprehensive code of behavior at numerous tourism outlets, and consequently, a single tactic that derives from the tourism businesses who form the core of WTTC is much wanted now than ever.
