Portugal is the first European country to receive the Safe Travels Certification

This seal aims to recognize destinations that comply with health and hygiene protocols in line with the Safe Travel Protocols issued by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), helping, above all, to instil confidence in consumers, so that they feel they can travel safely as soon as restrictions are raised.

For the Secretary of State for Tourism, Rita Marques, “Portugal was a pioneer in launching the "Clean & Safe" seal. This WTTC seal comes to reward the effort that has been made by everyone. The best destination in the world is also seen as the safest in the world. ”

The WTTC also published guidelines for other sectors, including catering, street shopping, aviation, airports, congress, meeting and event centres.

In addition to distinguishing destinations, the WTTC is also promoting a stamp that recognizes the commitment to safety by companies, a stamp that can be obtained through the WTTC website.
