WTTC’s Safe & Seamless Traveller Journey
WTTC advocates for the Safe & Seamless Traveller Journey (SSTJ) approach. The SSTJ’s goal is to avoid having travellers repeatedly presenting their travel documents at various conjunctures in their travels, rather they would use a single biometric identifier, creating a secure ‘walk-through experience’ for traveller flow efficiency. SSTJ will be critical in combating COVID-19 and beyond for crises preparedness, and will further speed the recovery of the Travel &Tourism sector. WorldReach’s remote identity and document verification solutions supports this approach as the front door to Safe & Seamless Traveller Journeys.
