NAIROBI, July 1 2020 – Kenya on Wednesday has been awarded the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) Safe Travel Stamp in recognition of the destination’s adoption of the global health and hygiene standardized protocols dubbed ‘Safe Travels’.
Najib Balala, Cabinet Secretary of Kenya’s Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife said Kenya has been listed among the 80 global destinations certified and authorized to use the “World Travel and Tourism Council Safe Travel Stamp” together with Magical Kenya Logo.
“This recognition is timely as Kenya prepares to reopen the tourism and hospitality industry after months of closure. This stamp will allow travelers to recognize Kenya as a safe destination once we reopen and implement the health and safety protocols,” he said.
WTTC, which was founded in 1990 and headquartered in London, represents the global private sector of travel and tourism, with a mission to ensure the sector is seamless, secure and safe.
Kenya also launched the WHO-endorsed health and safety protocols to support the reopening of the tourism sector.
