Brazil Launches New Booking Guide in Preparation of World Cup, Olympic Games

In preparation for hosting the 2014 World Cup, the 2016 Olympic Games and to gain a competitive edge in the international tourism market, Brazil has launched the Brazilian System for the Qualification of Accommodation Options (SBClass).

This instrument will serve as a guide when booking accommodations for travel to Brazil. Developed by the Ministry of Tourism (MTur) in a partnership with the National Institute of Industrial Metrology and Quality (Inmetro), the system adopts stars as a symbol, varying from one to five, that identifies the categories for each type of accommodation.

The use of this symbol will be exclusive to organizations that have been through the qualification process of MTur.

Seven types of places will be eligible for qualification: hotels, resorts, farm-hotels, bed & breakfasts, historic hotels, inns and flat/apart hotel. The enrollment of accommodation locations is voluntary.
