Portuguese Tourism Board launched a stamp of approval to distinguish activities which are compliant with hygiene and cleaning requirements for the prevention and control of COVID-19, as a way to reinforce the confidence in the destination’s safety.
The recognition is free and optional and it will be valid for one year. It requires the implementation of an internal protocol for companies that, according to the recommendations of the Directorate-General for Health, guarantee hygiene measures and safe procedures, avoiding risks of contagion in tourist activities.
The ‘Clean & Safe’ stamp can be obtained online at the Turismo de Portugal platforms and will always be associated with the company’s registration number.
After companies have submitted the Declaration of Commitment, they can publicise the “Clean & Safe” stamp, either physically on their premises or in their digital platforms. Turismo de Portugal, in coordination with the safety and hygiene authorities, will carry out random audits to adhering establishments.
With this measure, the Portuguese Tourism Board intends to inform companies on the minimum hygiene requirements and cleaning measures to ensure the safety of various establishments. Simultaneously, they will promote Portugal as a safe destination after the pandemic, with measures to prevent the spread of the virus.
