The Caribbean island of Dominica has received a “Safe Travels Stamp” from the World Travel and Tourism Council.
The stamp is a global safety and hygiene stamp for travel and tourism, aiming to reassure travelers that the destination’s protocols meet globally accepted standards.
Dominica is the latest in a line of Caribbean destinations that have received the stamp, from Aruba to the US Virgin Islands.
“Dominica is proud to join the growing number of tourism partners who have embraced the WTTC’s Safe Travels stamp,” said Dominica Tourism Minister Denise Charles. “This is a clear demonstration of our stance with our network locally, regionally and internationally, to ensure that the tourism industry thrives while the requisite health and safety protocols are implemented to combat the coronavirus pandemic.”
Dominica has been open for tourism since August.
“This links in perfectly with our Safe in Nature experience offered to visitors which provides an enjoyable and unforgettable managed experience adhering to all health and safety protocols. We are confident that the complementary Safe Travels stamp will provide the impetus to drive Dominica’s tourism while assuring visitors that they can discover the many wonders of Nature’s Isle safely,” Charles said.
