The extensive endorsements have come from many major holiday destinations around the world, with other holiday hot spots such as Turkey, Portugal, Kenya, and Mauritius, joining among many others.
WTTC, which represents the global travel and tourism private sector, created the Safe Travels stamp in May this year, to allow travellers to identify destinations and businesses around the world which have adopted the global standardised health and hygiene protocols.
The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) welcomed the WTTC Safe Travels stamp, which place the safety and hygiene of travellers as top priority.
Barbara Oteng-Gyasi, minister of tourism, arts and culture, Ghana said, “We are delighted with this milestone of a Safe Travels stamp for Ghana. Since March 21, when our borders were closed, we have worked on creating a safe environment for our tourism and travel practitioners. The protocols we have put in place are borne out of a shared responsibility to create a hygienic and safe destination. With the gradual easing of restrictions, we believe these measures will boost confidence in our tourism and hospitality sector. We congratulate the WTTC for instituting these Safe Travels protocols which is a welcome addition to the tourism industry.”
