Turismo de Portugal created the Clean & Safe stamp with the objective of recognising companies and leisure activities compliant with health safety recommendations issued by the National Tourist Authority, according to National Health Authority guidelines to avoid risks of contagion of covid-19.
To create awareness within tourist agents of the need to adopt health and hygiene measures and procedures that ensure the safety of their employees and customers and stimulate the resumption of national and international tourism activity, reinforcing confidence in Portugal as a tourism destination.
The Clean & Safe stamp is free and voluntary.
After submitting a declaration of commitment to comply with all requirements, the applicant will receive a communication confirming their registration and the official stamp, which can be used in their communications and advertising.
The stamp is valid until 30 April 2021.
If the company fails to comply with any requirement, they must immediately communicate it and they will no longer be able to use the “Clean & Safe” stamp.
Turismo de Portugal promotes specific training sessions for businesses to implement the requirements associated to the stamp.
Tourist guides receive Safe & Clean certified training.
Turismo de Portugal, the Economic Security Authority (ASAE) and industry associations will carry out random inspections to Clean & Safe stamp holders.
