2022 Travel Requirements

Guests may not join a tour without meeting all requirements. Guests should monitor Country Walkers’ and country specific requirements as they are subject to change.  All guests are required to log in to MyAccount to accept the following Health and Travel Attestation after reserving their tour.

2022 Health and Travel Attestation

  • I certify that I will be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and up to date with the first recommended booster as outlined by the CDC and as required by the destinations to which I am traveling. Country Walkers does not currently require a second booster to join our trips. I will visit the CDC website for detailed information and check back frequently prior to my departure date to ensure I understand and comply with guidance changes.
  • I certify that I will travel with my CDC vaccination card (or government approved vaccination passport for non-US citizens) and be prepared to provide proof of vaccine as needed to gain entry to some public spaces such as restaurants, hotels, indoor spaces, outdoor events, etc. This requirement varies by destination.
  • I certify that I am prepared to meet any COVID-19 testing requirements for my destination and transportation. (If you previously had COVID-19, it is recommended that you travel with proof of infection and recovery in case you cannot provide a negative test result.) Travelers who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within 5 days of their tour start date must cancel their travel plans.
  • I certify that I will review and meet all travel requirements outlined by Country Walkers and applicable government websites for my destination(s).
  • I certify that I will sign a health screening form on the first day of my tour (form will be provided by tour guides. Not applicable to Self-Guided Tours.)

2023 Travel Requirements

Guests must keep their COVID-19 vaccination up to date as required by the destinations to which they are traveling. Guests will visit the CDC website for detailed information and check back frequently prior to departure date to ensure understanding and compliance with guidance changes.

Country Walkers recommends that all guests be vaccinated and boosted prior to departure. Destination requirements continue to change, often with little notice, and failure to follow local health requirements, including traveling unvaccinated, could result in negative impacts to your experience. Please note that Country Walkers is unable to reimburse guests who cannot join a tour or take part in tour activities for failing to satisfy local health requirements.

Country Walkers recommends that all guests consult with their primary care provider to determine their risk level for travel.

Guests who develop COVID symptoms will be required to isolate and complete a COVID-19 test. A negative test result requires no further action. Guests who test positive on tour will not be able to continue with the tour and will be asked to isolate per CDC guidelines or destination guidelines, if more restrictive.

  • Guests must travel with their CDC vaccination card (or government approved vaccination passport for non-US citizens) and be prepared to provide proof of vaccine as needed to gain entry to some public spaces such as restaurants, hotels, indoor spaces, outdoor events, etc. if the destination requires it.
  • Guests should be prepared to meet any COVID-19 testing requirements imposed by the destination(s) to which they are traveling, as well as testing requirements imposed by transportation providers. (If a guest has previously had COVID-19, it is recommended they travel with proof of infection and recovery in case they cannot provide a negative test result.) Guests who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within 5 days of their tour start date must cancel their travel plans.
  • Guests must review and meet all travel requirements imposed by the locations to which they are traveling.
  • Guests must sign a health screening form on the first day of the tour (form will be provided by trip leaders. Not applicable for Self-Guided Tours.)

For travel to the US for our tours, or when returning to the US after an international tour, please review this website for requirement details.

Country Requirements: Each country section below will note requirements for entry for US Citizens.  Requirements are very specific; please pay close attention to timing for testing requirements.  If you are not within the required guidelines, you may be denied entry into the country. Information on face mask regulations and protective measures can be found by clicking the link to the country website.

Please note: If you are traveling on a multi-country tour or are traveling on your own before or after our tour, please check all countries that you plan to visit. It is also important to check directly with the airline operating your flights in the event that there are testing requirements for layovers.  Please be aware that any traveler may be subject to random testing in airports.
