Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism) has launched a vaccination campaign for employees of 20 hotels located on The Palm Jumeirah.

The move is part of the emirate's efforts to combat COVID-19 and further enhance its position as one of the world’s safest destinations.

The pilot programme has been rolled out in coordination with the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP).

More than 10,000 hotel employees at The Palm Jumeirah have been inoculated so far.

The UAE is currently ranked among the top 5 nations globally in terms of overall vaccine rollout, and also has a very effective test and trace programme.

Dubai has implemented a wide range of precautionary measures to ensure the safety of tourists at every stage and touchpoint of their travel journey, from arrival to departure.

The emirate's effective citywide management of the pandemic received a strong endorsement from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), which gave the city a ‘Safe Travels’ stamp.

Dubai also launched the ‘DUBAI ASSURED’ stamp to certify and recognise hotels and retail establishments, F&B outlets and attractions that have implemented all health and safety protocols established by Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management.

The specially designed ‘DUBAI ASSURED’ stamp is issued free of charge and is valid for 15 days. It will be renewed every two weeks upon further verification by inspectors from relevant government entities.

The stamp serves as a visual identity reassuring guests that all safety and hygiene measures have been complied with across all tiers and categories of tourist and resident touchpoints.
