Travel Entry and Exit Requirements

Guests may not join a tour without meeting all requirements.  Participants should monitor VBT 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. VBT 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 VBT 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 trip leaders. Not applicable to Self-Guided Tours.)

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.
