The Safe Travels Stamp was created by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) as the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene stamp. The stamp enables travelers to recognize destinations around the world that have adopted health and hygiene global standardized protocols. The Safe Travels initiative is globally accepted and instills a level of confidence in both tourism trade and international visitors.
GVB serves as the official organization to advocate for the implementation of these protocols in Guam and to issue the Safe Travels stamp to local businesses. The first version of the program was launched in 2021.
“We have streamlined the Safe Travels Stamp program to bring a better global approach to the latest health and safety practices in Guam as we learn to live with COVID,” said GVB Vice President Dr. Gerry Perez. “We thank all the proactive businesses that have pledged to uphold the highest standards of hygienic practices and we look forward to announcing even more businesses that will be approved through this program.”
