UNWTO Statement on the Zika Virus

Published on : Friday, January 29, 2016

UNWTO NEW logo_40UNWTO is closely monitoring the situation and in close contact with WHO and the relevant tourism authorities.


We would like to recall that based on available evidence WHO does not recommend any travel or trade restrictions related to Zika virus disease.


Health and tourism authorities are working together to inform residents, tourists as well as the industry about the precautions to be taken and the industry is working closely with health authorities to follow prevention recommendations.


Travellers should refer to the health advice prior to travel and take precautions against mosquito bites. As advised by WHO, travellers should stay informed about Zika virus and other mosquito-borne diseases and consult their local health or travel authorities if they are concerned.


As per the impact on tourism, it is too early to make any impact assessment considering the evolving nature of the situation.


It is important is to ensure quick and transparent information is provided to travellers as a precautionary measure and to avoid misinterpretations about the situation.
