Cape Town receives global Safe Travels stamp

The Mother City has received a Safe Travels stamp, securing its place as a safe destination for travellers to visit. The stamp is the first of its kind and it indicates that a destination is safe to venture to in terms of its strict health and safety protocols.

Cape Town Tourism (CTT), the official destination marketing and management organisation for the City of Cape Town, has been approved as a user of the World Travel and Tourism Council’s (WTTC) safety stamp.

‘This is a great achievement as it highlights that as a destination, we are committed to be aligned with the Safe Travel protocols as set out by WTTC,’ says Enver Duminy, CEO of Cape Town Tourism. ‘It emphasises that we are serious about being a safe destination for travelers and that we are ready to cautiously but warmly welcome visitors back again.’

As a user of the stamp, Cape Town Tourism has the opportunity to assume the role of a Safe Travels ambassador to its members and other stakeholders, advocating the implementation of the Safe Travels protocols. CTT also has an ongoing responsibility to encourage anyone making use of the Safe Travels stamp to be compliant with the protocols and various Terms & Conditions.

These Safe Travels protocols is a new global set of guidelines for use by the travel and tourism sector. These protocols highlight global best practice when it comes to Covid-19 and are aimed to help rebuild confidence in destinations around the world.
