Oman adopts WTTC Safe Travels stamp

The sultanate joins New Zealand and Switzerland as the latest countries to adopt the initiative

The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has been leading the way when it comes to rebuilding global consumer confidence and encouraging the return of safe travel. Integral to this was the launch of the ‘Safe Travels’ stamp just over a year ago.

The Safe Travels stamp allows travellers and other travel and tourism stakeholders to recognise destinations and companies that have implemented health and hygiene protocols in line with WTTC’s Global Safe Travels Protocols.

Since then, more than 400 destinations around the world have adopted the initiative with New Zealand, Switzerland and Oman among the latest major destinations to adopt the globally recognised stamp.

WTTC  president and CEO Julia Simpson said: “We’re delighted that our Safe Travels stamp continues to go from strength to strength and has been adopted by destinations from every corner of the world.

“From Portugal to Puerto Rico, Sri Lanka to Slovenia, Thailand to Tunisia, our stamp is now recognised around the globe. This is testimony to the hard work and dedication of all those involved in making our stamp work for both destinations and holidaymakers. This sets a standard of health and safety protocols so visitors can travel safe in the knowledge that a destination is following the highest standards.”
