ASEAN is committed to welcoming travelers back to the Southeast Asia region, and to better ensure the health and safety of travelers, ASEAN has created safety and health protocols to reduce possible exposure to viruses and keep everyone healthy.
The organisation has officially released the ASEAN Guidelines on Hygiene and Safety for Professionals and the Communities in the Tourism Industry. The Guidelines are designed for several communities in the tourism industry, covering 8 tourism and tourism-related sectors: accommodation, restaurants, facilities, spa and wellness, ecotourism/community-based tourism, travel and tour operation, and theme parks and convention centers.
This set of Guidelines, along with the ASEAN Safe Travel Stamp, may be utilised by tourism industry players to assure travelers of hygiene and safety standards to raise the competitiveness and attractiveness of Southeast Asia as a preferred tourism destination.
