The Maldives has received the Safe Travels stamp granted by World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), in recognition the country’s efforts in implementing enhanced health and safety measures, in line with WTTC’s protocols and creating a safe, gradual plan by rebuilding confidence among travelers and ensuring a coordinated approach in restarting our Tourism industry.
The Maldives achieved the Safe Travels Stamp, which is endorsed by the World Tourism Organization and more than 200 travel companies.
The objective of the Safe Travel Stamp is to provide confidence to travelers and re-establish consumer confidence in Travel & Tourism and ensure travelers of enhanced standards of hygiene are in place and the assurance that they can once again experience ‘Safe Travels’.
It is the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene stamp for Travel & Tourism, designed to address COVID-19 and similar outbreaks.
The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) also embraced the WTTC Safe Travels stamp, which has the safety and hygiene of travelers as their top priority.
Since the launch of the stamp, major destinations around the world have signed up to the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene stamp.
The Maldives has reopened its borders for international tourists on July 15, and is currently open to all tourists, provided they have proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken a maximum 72 hours before departure from their original destination.
