Maldives achieved the Safe Travels stamp, endorsed by the World Tourism Organization, and more than 200 travel companies. The main aim of this esteemed stamp is to give confidence to travellers and re-establish consumer confidence in Travel and Tourism, while ensuring travellers that enhanced standards of hygiene are in place, and assuring them safe travels.
