As steps get into high gear on re-opening the country, Kenya has been awarded the Safe Travel Stamp by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) which is a forum for the travel and tourism industry.

The accreditation came in recognition of the country’s adoption of the global health and hygiene standardized protocols dubbed ‘Safe Travels’ in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Making the announcement during the launch of the Tourism and Travel Health and Safety Protocols in Kenya on Wednesday, July 1, Tourism CS Najib Balala was optimistic in reopening the tourism industry in the country.

“I am delighted to announce that Kenya has been listed among the 80 global destinations certified and authorised to use the “World Travel and Tourism Council Safe Travel Stamp” together with our Magical Kenya Logo.
