The Maldives has been granted the World Travel and Tourism Council’s (WTTC) Safe Travels stamp. 

This 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.”

Aiming to re-establish consumer confidence, the stamp is endorsed by the UN’s World Tourism Organisation and more than 200 travel companies.

To date 100 destinations have received the endorsement including the Philippines, Bermuda, Namibia, Uganda and Montenegro.
