South Africa has been awarded a Global Safety Stamp of Approval by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), marking it as a safe travel destination for international visitors.

‘The specially designed stamp will allow travellers to recognise businesses in South Africa that have adopted world-class health and hygiene protocols for safe travel,’ Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) CEO, Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa told Tourism Update.

Johannesburg, Gauteng.

The TBCSA has recently launched a new app to aid hospitality and tourism stakeholders called Opus4business. Business owners can receive valuable information and advice about the latest health and safety protocols in the industry, as well as manage COVID-19 health screening for employees, suppliers, delivery agents and customers in full compliance with the Protection of Personal Information Act. The app can also facilitate contact tracing if needed.

‘The app is yet another way the industry is demonstrating self-regulation and a readiness to open for domestic and international travel in the country. We are encouraging businesses to download the app and take their teams through the training to increase compliance in the industry and to keep staff and customers in the sector safe,’ said Tshivhengwa.
