Caribbean region to launch health app and travel assurance stamp

The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) is launching a traveller health app and assurance stamp in a bid to build confidence in travelling to the region.

CARPHA has partnered with the Caribbean Tourism Organisation (CTO), Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) and the Global Tourism Resilience and Crisis Management Center (GTRCMC) to form a Covid-19 Tourism Task Force, which has set up the app and stamp.

The Caribbean Traveller's Health Mobile App provides travel health information by each travel destination, including proactive and prevention measures, as well as unique travel requirements by country, such as testing, health screening, pre-approval and tracking.

The app also identifies accommodation and other hospitality facilities within a destination that have been awarded the Caribbean Travellers Health Assurance Stamp for Healthier Safer Tourism (HST).

The stamp is a recognition award for tourism entities and destinations which are implementing the recommended proactive Covid-19 health monitoring and safety measures.

Hospitality facilities awarded the HST Stamp will be listed as a preferred safer option on Caribbean Traveller's Health Mobile App and later will be listed on CARPHA, CTO and CHTA websites, with links to regional and international health and tourism stakeholders.

In 2021 this will be extended to include passenger ships which have been awarded the stamp.

The app and Health Assurance Stamp will launch on November 5.
