World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) protocols include providing the public & private sectors with the insights and toolkits for interaction and implementation to ensure that people are and feel safe, and it is paramount to have common rules. While the protocols take into account current WHO and CDC guidelines, they are constantly updated as new information becomes available.
Global Safety Stamp to Recognize Safe Travels Protocols
The specially designed stamp will allow travellers to recognize governments and companies around the world which have adopted health and hygiene global standardized protocols so travelers can experience ‘Safe Travels’.
Gloria Guevara, President & CEO
Gloria joined WTTC in August 2017, following a varied career in Travel and Tourism. Recognized as one of the most influential women in Mexico by CNN and Expansion, she began her professional career in 1989 at NCR Corporation working in the Latin America, Middle East, and Africa regions. Since 1995 she has worked for the travel industry, starting at the Sabre Travel Network and Sabre Holdings, and later on she was CEO of JV Sabre Mexico reporting to a board of directors from Aeromexico, Mexicana, and Sabre.

We believe that the WTTC is pointing the right direction for new normal protocols, and we encourage you to choose destinations stamped with “Safe Travels” for your future medical adventure. However, some of these destinations may require a 14-day quarantine period upon arrival for international visitors.
Here are some of the destinations certified by the World Travel & Tourism Council so far:-
- Cancun, Mexico
- Guadalajara, Mexico
- Merida, Mexico
- Los Cabos, Mexico
- Barcelona, Spain
- Madrid, Spain
Be Smart. Be Safe.
