Portugal is the first European country to receive the ‘Safe Travels’ seal from WTTC.
This seal aims to recognize destinations that comply with health and hygiene protocols in line with the Safe Travel Protocols issued by the WTTC, helping, above all, to instill confidence in consumers, so that they feel they can travel safely as soon as restrictions are raised.
The WTTC also published guidelines for other sectors, including catering, street shopping, aviation, airports, congress, meeting and event centers.
In addition to distinguishing destinations, the WTTC is also promoting a stamp that recognizes the commitment to safety by companies.
“A World for Travel”, a world summit of travel and tourism will take place in Évora, on 5th and 6th November.
