USHealthPass, Visit Mexico Partner on COVID Health Monitoring for Travelers

USHealthPass, which works with licensed healthcare professionals to review and determine COVID-19 health status, has partnered with Braintivity and VisitMexico USA on a mobile app to ensure that travelers have confidence when selecting Mexico as their travel destination. Underpinning the partnership is  PassID powered by PROVEN, a secure, digital tool that allows organizations to safely confirm the COVID-19 health status of travelers, employees, and customers. 

“As borders continue to open up and tourism picks up, there is an increased need for health monitoring to protect the safety of both passengers and the country-at-large,” said Peter Gallic, USHealthPass president and chairman of the Visit México Health Board .“PROVEN will fill that need, keeping travelers safe and secure with this portable tool that can validate anyone’s COVID-19 health status.” 

Added Carlos Gonzalez Gonzalez, general director of VisitMexico, “Following our strategy to promote Mexico as a destination and attract travelers in a reliable and safe way, we are excited to announce this alliance that will help travelers have the confidence while making their traveling decisions to Mexico´s most wanted destinations.”

Visit Mexico USA was launched by Terra Holdings owner Kent M. Swig, Gary K.  Levi and Alvaro Vitolo to market and promote visitor travel to Mexico. It recently opened Visit Mexico’s first international office, at 444 Madison Ave. in Midtown Manhattan.
