The organization Turismo de Portugal (Tourism of Portugal), aiming to boost the confidence of tourists, has developed two more actions for those who visit the country. Last week, it was announced the launch of the “Protected Tourist” kit, as well as the adaptation of the Clean & Safe seal platform as a database for tourists visiting the country.
These actions appear as important initiatives, since there was a significant increase in demand for travel. In addition to strengthening confidence that Portugal is indeed a safe destination to visit, these measures facilitate and promote compliance with the preventive health rules of COVID-19 dissemination.
We’ve even talked about Portugal being one of the safest post-coronavirus destinations. See more in this article.
According to the information provided by the organization, regarding the “Protected Tourist” kit, Turismo de Portugal explains that this is a joint initiative with ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal and the Regional Agencies for Tourism Promotion (Algarve, Lisbon, Alentejo and Ribatejo, Centro), Porto and North and Azores), which consists of the delivery to tourists visiting the country of a kit composed of two “Portuguese Mask”, CITEVE level 3 certification masks, which meet the safety criteria, a package of alcohol gel, protection advice and a QR Code to access the http://www.portugalcleanandsafe.com.
With this QR Code, tourists can consult all the companies and establishments that are already part of the seal, and have the opportunity to evaluate compliance with the security measures of these locations. In addition, the platform will also have a system for registering tourists interested in receiving information sent by the Turismo de Portugal, as well as having access to a set of information to support tourists in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic in Portugal.
According to the official website of the Clean & Safe Seal – see more here – obtaining the seal means undertaking to comply with the safety and hygiene requirements defined by the National Tourism Authority according to the guidelines of the Directorate General of Health.
These initiatives are part of a set of actions that Tourism of Portugal has already been implementing to strengthen the positioning of the country as a safe destination and prepared to receive tourists.
