The World Travel and Tourism Council has given Jordan “Safe Travels” stamp, as a way to recognize the Kingdom’s successful measures in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. The country’s tourism industry is slowly coming to life again, since Kingdom’s tourist attractions -such as Petra, one of the New 7 Wonders of the World- are being promoted for local visitors.
The WTTC specially designed stamp will allow travellers to recognise governments and companies around the world which have adopted health and hygiene global standardised protocols. This is a way to ensure consumers can experience “Safe Travels”.
According to Jordan Tourism Minister, Majd Shweikeh, the country adopted “three steps to deal with the virus outbreak. The first was a nationwide lockdown of all tourist sites and facilities to protect all workers in the sector; the second included procedures aimed at protecting and gradually reopening the sector, while the third stage was the recovery stage involving reopening facilities for domestic tourism”.
