Rwanda is among the latest top tourist destinations to receive the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene stamp, launched recently by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).
The safety stamp means that Rwanda has adopted the global standardized health and hygiene protocols that were devised following the experience of WTTC members dealing with COVID19.
They are also based on guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
‘‘Rwanda is proud to adopt these global standards that re-establish traveler confidence. The country’s number one priority remains the health and well-being of visitors. Tourists are welcome for safe and memorable experiences – from seeing the Big 5 on safari, to trekking the magnificent mountain gorillas and numerous other primate species.’’
Rwanda reopened tourism activities on June 17th, 2020. International tourism reopened on August 1st, 2020.
