Abu Dhabi announces the launch of its strategy for the tourism sector, which has been created in anticipation for the return of tourists worldwide. Hotels within the emirate have been undergoing rigorous sanitation from the beginning of March, leading to the reopening of the properties after they receive clearance and certification from DCT Abu Dhabi.

Amongst the initiatives launched by DCT Abu Dhabi to address the need for elevated standards of health and safety is the Go Safe Certification, a unique programme that aims to enforce global standards of safety and cleanliness at hotels, attractions, and venues across the emirate. “Abu Dhabi is setting a new standard for best practices in tourism, following the high praise that the UAE has received for the proactive approach through which the government has addressed the current situation,” said HE Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi.

Go Safe will focus on hotels and entertainment establishments to ensure that they are in the best shape to receive visitors. W Hotel is the first hotel in the emirate to be certified. The certification will move on to cover six additional hotels, four attractions, two theme parks, two malls and a public beach. Go Safe is then set to be rolled out across all attractions within the capital including malls, restaurants, theme parks and other public spaces.
