Safe Tourism Certification

 

We are pleased to announce that both Constance Lemuria and Constance Ephelia are ‘Safe Tourism Certified!
With the current situation, the Seychelles Tourism Board took the lead and launched a consortium-based certification system to ensure ‘safe’ experience for visitors while on holiday in Seychelles.

A green- ticked badge, a specially designed stamp, will allow guests to recognise businesses in Seychelles, which have adopted the health and hygiene standardised protocols set by the local public health authority.

Issued by the Department of Tourism and endorsed by the Public Health Authority, the safe tourism certificates, acts as a seal of approval for service providers.

 “Our local businesses have been very forthcoming in helping us implement the new sanitary regulations the industry will have to abide by for operations. We are satisfied to see their interest to comply with this new component of tourism" - Mrs Anne Lafortune, Principal Secretary for Tourism

The certification assures visitors that local service providers operating within the tourism industry and other related businesses are providing the best possible practices to ensure their comfort and safety under the ‘new normal’.

 “Safety has become an even more important prerequisite for travel. As a destination restarting its tourism industry, our responsibilities vis-a-vis our guests and local service providers are immense. We have been advocating for standard practices to be adopted across the globe and we are proud to see the implementations of these practices locally” - Mrs Sherin Francis, Chief Executive Officer at Seychelles Tourism Board.

So far, 204 accommodation establishments have been certified under the Safe Tourism Certification label.
