Dubai has launched a compliance program to certify and recognize hotels and retail establishments, F&B (food and beverage) outlets and attractions that have implemented all public health protocols for the prevention and management of COVID-19. The initiative is part of efforts to showcase Dubai as one of the world’s safest destinations as it continues to receive tourists following the city’s reopening to international visitors on July 7.
A verification and validation process has been established in collaboration with the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), Department of Economic Development (Dubai Economy) and Dubai Municipality for issuing the “Dubai Assured” stamp to hotel and retail establishments, F&B outlets and tourist attractions that have complied with health and safety guidelines issued in accordance with the preventive protocols outlined by Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management.
The specially designed “Dubai Assured” stamp, to be issued free of charge, will have a validity of 15 days and it will be renewed every two weeks upon further verification by inspectors from the relevant authorities.
Over 1,000 establishments have already been inspected for compliance with relevant guidelines, as part of the program, making them eligible to receive the stamp.
