Grenada Receives WTTC Safe Travel Stamp/
The World Travel & Tourism Council WTCC recently released the world's first safety and hygiene stamp. Some of the very first countries to use it are Sri Lanka and Grenada. Other countries are joining them, one after another.
The idea behind the “Safe Travel” stamp is to help travelers identify safe destinations around the world. Such marked countries have adopted globally standardized health and hygiene protocols.
Since the launch of the program, countries have adopted new WTTC protocols, including Portugal, Dubai, Egypt and Turkey. As part of the protocol, these measures provide consistency and guidance for travel service providers and travelers on a new approach to health, hygiene, deep cleaning and physical distancing in the “new normal” of the COVID-19 world.
Gloria Guevara, President and CEO of the WTTC said, “Our Safe Travels stamp continues to be a great success and we are thrilled to see even more popular countries and destinations adopt our global health and hygiene protocols. The stamp has had astounding success since its launch. This shows the importance of the initiative, not only to countries and destinations but also, crucially, to travelers and the 330 million people around the world whose livelihoods depend on the travel and tourism sector.”
