Restoring Public Confidence on Safe Travels

ADB and AIM are focusing on drumming up solutions for the post-COVID-19 era.

Challenge Overview

In this challenge, we aim to develop innovative digital solutions that support the implementation of new travel policies emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic such as screening procedures and health checks, physical distancing protocols, new travel requirements, standardized facility sanitation, and passengers’ hygiene regimens to reduce the spread of infection and restore confidence in travel.


The COVID-19 pandemic has brought travel and tourism industry to a complete standstill and has taken a toll on national economies and people’s livelihoods.  Recovery of the travel and tourism sector will play an important role in the global economy’s ability to rebound quickly from COVID-19 related shock. 


  • Win USD 10,000 for pilot testing chosen solutions

  • Connect with ADB experts and pitch to ADB leaders.

  • Gain ADB support to undergo incubation and access funding sources to implement solutions.
