By the A.M. Costa Rica staff


The World Travel & Tourism Council, WTTC, authorized the Tourism Institute to award the Safe Travels Seal to tourism companies that comply with the sanitary guideline to avoid the contagion of covid-19.

According to the institute, in addition to Costa Rica, countries such as Panama, Aruba, Portugal, Dubai, Paris, Madrid, Mexico; among many others, use the Safe Travels Seal.

The seal is free for all companies committed to the fight against covid-19 by allowing tourists to recognize that the place follows the sanitizing guidelines for the care of visitors, the institute said.

To obtain the seal, companies or entrepreneurs must fill out the form published on the institute's website. Then, representatives of the institute would visit the company to verify compliance with the sanitary guidelines.

All tourism companies that have a permit from the Ministry of Health and also the commercial license from the municipality may get the seal for free, as long as they comply with the guidelines developed by the institute.

In addition to the institute, the Chambers of Tourism and associations of companies and entrepreneurs can also grant the seal to its affiliates.
