Moscow has joined the World Travel & Tourism Council’s ‘Safe Travels’.  This is the first global safety travel initiative since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Moscow travel agencies, hotels and various other facilities can now obtain the special stamp: Safe Travels Discover Moscow. This  means that  all sanitary standards and recommendations issued by the authorities are being observed, according to Deputy Moscow Mayor Natalya Sergunina.

“Moscow companies and various facilities have started to obtain international ‘Safe Travels’ stamps. They have already been issued to 39 entities. This confirms that all WHO requirements and recommendations are being observed in Moscow. This includes such things as social distancing, health monitoring of workers plus the wearing of PPE,” she said.

The WTTC’s ‘Safe Travels’ standards have been compiled for places like hotels, airports, conference and cultural centres, tourist sites, property rental and rent-a-car services, tour operators and travel agencies. The ‘Safe Travels’ security protocols advise taking both local and national laws into consideration as well as instructions from international organisations, including the WHO.

In order to obtain the stamp Moscow entities need to file an application via. The inspection of each place takes just 10 days. If all the requirements are met the applicants will be included in the ‘Safe Travels’ system and information will be entered in the Safe Travels Discover Moscow register.
