Belize Receives Safe Travels Stamp from World Travel & Tourism Council
With a promising new year for travel, it’s not uncommon for many wander lusters to carefully review where their 2021 travels will take them. In an effort to boost traveler confidence, the World Travel & Tourism Council has implemented a “Safe Travels” Stamp for governments and companies around the world that offer travel services. In late December 2020, Belize was recognized by the WTTC as a “Safe Travels” destination.
This stamp allows travelers to identify destinations and entities that have adopted global standardized health and hygiene protocols. During a time where traveling safely is of optimum priority, the WTTC Safe Travels stamp for Belize will further aid in boosting traveller confidence.
Belize has been awarded this honor, thanks to the rigorous safety procedures the country has implemented as part of its Phased Reopening Plan and introduction of its Gold Standard Recognition Program. The destination is easily accessible via its 3-step entry process: (1) download the Belize Health App, (2) select a Gold Standard Accommodation, (3) bring along a negative 96-hour PCR test or 48-hour Rapid Antigen test. Ease of entry, along with the enhanced health and safety protocols has allowed Belize to continue making headlines for its efforts to protect not only citizens, but its visitors.
“Belize is delighted to have received the World Travel & Tourism Council’s Stamp of Approval,” says Belize’s Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relations, Hon. Anthony Mahler, “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!”
