The Maldives has been granted the World Travel and Tourism Council’s (WTTC) Safe Travels stamp.
It means the destination has implemented enhanced health and safety measures, in line with the WTTC global Safe Travels protocols and "created a safe, gradual plan by rebuilding confidence among travellers and ensuring a coordinated approach in restarting our tourism industry".
The stamp is endorsed by the UN’s World Tourism Organization and more than 200 travel companies. The objective of the Safe Travels Stamp is to provide confidence to travellers and re-establish consumer confidence.
It claims to be the world’s first global safety and hygiene stamp for travel and tourism, designed to address Covid-19 and similar outbreaks.
