The stamp follows the measures set out by the World Travel and Tourism Council’s (WTTC) ‘Safe Travels’ stamp, the world’s first global safety and hygiene stamp for travel and tourism.
SCTDA, in collaboration with Sharjah Health Authority, has commenced inspecting various establishments in the emirate to ensure compliance with the required health and safety measures. This latest move is in line with Sharjah’s gradual easing of restrictions to reopen public and private facilities in the tourism sector such as hotels, restaurants, shops, malls, leisure and recreation destinations, including beaches, swimming pools, and golf courses, among others, enabling services to be provided while reassuring visitors of their safety during their visit.
Residents and tourists visiting the emirate can look for the ‘Safety Assured’ stamp displayed in the establishment prior to making a booking or upon entry. The stamp is a visual symbol which gives instant recognition of the establishment’s compliance to the precautionary measures being implemented by the government, reassuring consumers of the safety of the location.
