Global Body Gives Tourism in Tanzania the Safety Nod

Dar es Salaam — The government expressed its optimism yesterday after a global endorsement of Tanzania as a destination that has implemented safety measures and precautions against Covid-19.

The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) gave Tanzania the "safe travels" nod, which the government said will now give travelers confidence to visit its rich and varied attractions.

Speaking during an event to launch the stamp yesterday, the Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism, Dr Hamis Kingwangalla, said Tanzania was ready to receive visitors.

"A few countries have received the stamp. We can now use this stamp anywhere in the world to promote our attractions and we are confident that as more countries open from lockdown, we will have more tourists," he said.
