What does it mean?
Madeira Islands are focused on positioning as a safe destination and are working with SGS, the world leader in certification, to ensure good practices across the destination to minimise risks in the wake of Covid-19.
The certification process is available to all companies in the tourism sector, which will be easily identified by the logo, designed under the umbrella “MADEIRA SAFE TO DISCOVER”.
Most local companies are also adopting the “CLEAN & SAFE” stamp, created by VisitPortugal.
Furthermore, Madeira was a pioneer in the development of a good practices document to deal with Covid-19. These measures will provide comfort to those who travel, and are ultimately for the wellbeing of all.
Also, local authorities require all passengers to proceed with a covid-19 test. The test can be done on arrival at Madeira’s airport, or 72 hours prior to arrival.
All the above initiatives underpin the destination’s determination to ensure a safe tourism location for all visitors.
