Egypt awarded WTTC Safe Travels stamp
Decision reflects country's commitment to resuming safe inbound tourism with comprehensive hygiene safety measures starting by early July, says El-Anany
Published in Daily News Egypt on 20 - 06 - 2020

The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) has awarded Egypt the Safe Travels stamp. The move follows the WTTC's recognition, on Saturday, health and safety regulations approved by Egypt's Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities to re-receive incoming tourism to it.
The specially designed stamp will allow travellers to recognise governments and companies around the world which have adopted global, standardised health and hygiene protocols to experience ‘Safe Travels'.
During a video conference on Saturday, WTTC President Gloria Guevara congratulated Egypt's Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Khaled El-Anany, on Egypt's safety controls that have been consistent with the WTTC's issued protocols.
Guevara also announced her happiness at granting Egypt the Safe Travels stamp. She also expressed her happiness at seeing major traveller destinations, such as Egypt, joining the growing list of global destinations adopting WTTC private sector protocols.
"This not only shows the success of the WTTC Safe Travel stamp, but also demonstrates its importance to travellers and those who work in the tourism field," Guevara said. She also noted that this stage is one of joint cooperation and concerted efforts between countries in the face of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
"I am pleased with the decision issued today by the WTTC to grant Egypt its Safe Travels stamp. This is a milestone in our bilateral cooperation with the WTTC," El-Anany said.
He added that the decision reflects Egypt's commitment to the safe resumption of inbound tourism with strict, comprehensive hygiene safety measures starting by early July.
"We are looking forward to welcoming guests to Egypt's resorts on the Red Sea and Mediterranean coast," he assured.
