The Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB), in collaboration with the Guam Hotel & Restaurant Association (GHRA), has announced that 69 additional businesses have been approved for the updated Guam Safe Travels Stamp program. The new total for approved applications is now at 104.

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 allows travelers to recognize destinations around the world that have adopted health and hygiene protocols that are aligned with the WTTC’s global standards. The Safe Travels initiative is accepted worldwide 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 free program was launched in 2021 and revamped in January 2022.

We are astounded by the commitment of the 104 business community members that have embraced the updated Safe Travels Stamp program.”

GVB Director of Global Marketing Nadine Leon Guerrero went on to say: “We’re proud to say that all the major hotel properties that are active on island have applied and been approved. As we take more steps to live through this COVID era, we are confident this program brings added value to our locals and visitors because these businesses have pledged to uphold the highest standards of hygienic practices on a global level.”
