Thailand has joined the ever growing list of destinations to adopt the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Safe Travels Stamp.
The WTTC made history when it launched the world’s first ever global safety and hygiene stamp, 12 months ago. The stamp was developed to help restore confidence in travellers and aims to revive the global Travel & Tourism sector which has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The stamp has now been adopted by Indonesia and the Philippines and Thailand within Southeast Asia.
“The Tourism Authority of Thailand is delighted that the World Travel & Tourism Council has approved the use of the TAT’s Amazing Thailand Safety and Health Administration (SHA) logo in tandem with the WTTC Safe Travels stamp.“
“Together, they share a common objective to ensure that all visitors feel safe, as Thailand continues to open its tourism industry to international travel in the new normal.”
“The Safe Travels stamp has reaffirmed the Amazing Thailand SHA and serves to further motivate travel-related enterprises in Thailand to maintain their health and safety standards, as the country rebuilds traveller confidence while also protecting the Thai workforce that serves them.“YuthasakSupasorn, Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand
The WTTC Safe Travel stamp protocols were designed following guidelines from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and taking best practices from WTTC’s Members into account.
“We are delighted that our Safe Travels stamp continues to grow from strength to strength and has been adopted by destinations from all corners of the world.”
“As the global vaccine rollout picks up pace around the world and with travel restrictions beginning to be relaxed, we believe the stamp will prove a key component of destination recovery and restoring consumer confidence.“
“The success of the stamp shows the importance of global coordination to help rebuild and revive the international Travel & Tourism sector which has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“However, we are finally beginning to step into the new normal of a post-COVID world, and we are proud to be leading the way for globally coordinated efforts in recovery.“Gloria Guevara, President & CEO WTTC
Globally the stamp has also been adopted in the UK, UAE, Saudi Arabia and some regions within USA, canada, Mexico and Brazil.
