Argentina keeps sending health safety messages to the world. In a meeting led by Ricardo Sosa, Executive Secretary of the National Bureau of Tourism Promotion (INPROTUR) today, Santiago del Estero (Northern region), Catamarca (Northern region), Córdoba (Córdoba region), Santa Cruz (Patagonia region) and Misiones (Litoral region) received the Safe Travels Stamp, recognized by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC).

Thus, after our country reopened its borders for travelers from neighboring countries, 23 out of the 24 districts in our territory were given this important award, which conveys a message of trust and certainty to tourists from all over the world

As Sosa pointed out: “I would like to highlight the work done by the technical team at INPROTUR along with the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, as well as the support we always receive from the CAT, the CFT and the ICTA. This award shows the commitment that our country and all the provinces have towards health issues. This way, with full awareness and responsibility, we are gradually getting ahead. Solidarity and joint work are, as we see it, the key to reactivating tourism”.

Aldo Elías, president of the Argentine Chamber of Tourism, Javier Espina, director of the Federal Council of Tourism (CFT) and provincial officials joined Sosa at the event.

As part of its extensive prevention work, Argentina has developed more than ten Health Protocols in different languages, which can be found in the INPROTUR content Hub.

 The Safe Travels stamp is awarded by the WTTC for the purpose of contributing to a responsible and safe reopening of tourism and has already been received by about 50 countries. INPROTUR has the power to award this distinction to any provinces, destinations and companies whose tourism development is in line with the protocols developed by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Argentina, along with the ICTA, the CAT and the CFT which, in turn, are in line with the WTTC global protocols.
