The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) has approved Egypt’s regulation for the resumption of tourism to Egypt and offered the country the Safe Travel Stamp on Saturday.

In a video conference call Gloria Guevara, WTTC president and CEO, told Khaled El-Enany, the Egyptian minister of tourism and antiquities she is "delighted to see major countries and destinations such as Egypt and Slovenia joining the growing list of global destinations adopting our private sector protocols. This not only shows the success of the WTTC Safe Travel Stamp, but also demonstrates its importance to travellers and those who work in the sector.

“We thank these destination countries and cities for working with WTTC and this time is the time for cooperation.”

"This is a milestone in our bilateral cooperation with the WTTC," El-Enany said.

The WTTC decision reflects Egypt's commitment to the safe resumption of inbound tourism with strict comprehensive hygiene safety measures starting 1 July to its superb, sunny, and healthy beaches, he added.

“Egypt is looking forward to welcoming you soon in its resorts in the Red Sea and South Sinai governorates and the Mediterranean coast in Marsa Matrouh governorate,” he said.

The WTTC designed the stamp to enable travellers to identify destinations and businesses that adopt its hygiene and safe travel protocols.
