By BBN Staff: Today, the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) announced that Belize has achieved the Safe Travels Stamp, granted by the World Travel &Tourism Council (WTTC).
The Safe Travels Stamp is the first global safety and hygiene stamp.
It was awarded to Belize in December 2020 in recognition of the country’s enhanced health and safety protocols.
The stamp was developed in order to help restore confidence in travelers and revive the global travel and tourism sectors.
The stamp enables travelers to recognize destinations around the world that have adopted health and hygiene protocols that are aligned with the WTTC’s Safe Travels Protocols.
Belize joins an esteemed group of destinations that have achieved this recognition, including Dubai, Barcelona, Jamaica, Mauritius, and Saudi Arabia, among others.
“Belize’s Tourism Gold Standard certification program for hotels, restaurants, tour operators and attractions and our comprehensive Health & Safety guidelines underscores that our highest priority is the health and safety of our guests,” BTB noted.
Belize’s Tourism Minister, Anthony Mahler said that Belize is delighted to have received the stamp.
“Belize is delighted to have received the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Stamp of Approval. The WTTC’s Stamp of Approval is a milestone achievement for Belize and is truly a strong testament of Belize’s unwavering commitment to an environment which is safe, secure and provides an authentic and meaningful experience to our visitors,” Mahler expressed.
The BTB encourages stakeholders who have not yet applied for Tourism Gold Standard Certification (TGS) to do so.
Templates have been developed in an effort to make the process of applying for Gold Standard recognition easier and more convenient and can be found at https://belizetourismboard.org/tourism-resources/tourism-application-forms/ .
The BTB says that information on distribution and use of the Safe Travels stamp by Gold Standard entities will be shared shortly.
