Please make sure you have proof of Covid-19 vaccination for your 2022 tour.
European countries are reinforcing further restrictions for travelers without proof of being FULLY VACCINATED (maximum of 9 months since your last vaccination shot). Due to the ever changing travel restrictions across Europe it is necessary to be able to show proof of being fully vaccinated before embarking on a 2022 tour. Many suppliers of ours require proof of vaccination and, as the local restrictions are constantly changing, we believe one simple recommendation to all our travelers in 2022 is most efficient: Please make sure you are fully vaccinated and that you can demonstrate proof of being fully vaccinated before embarking on tour.
Please note that countries in Europe are following the EU recommendation of requiring a maximum time of 9 months since your last vaccination shot in order to be considered fully vaccinated.
For Greece (when on cruise) the expiry time of your last vaccination is 9 months. There is no expiry date if booster vaccination was administrated. For full vaccination requirements for the GREEK CRUISE: Greece Protocols – Vaccination Mandate – Celestyal Cruises
As of February 1st (2022) Italy is reinforcing new validity dates of vaccines where your last jab (second dose of basic vaccination) cannot be older than 9 months. There is no expiry date if booster vaccination was administrated.
Please check with your group leader what the requirements are for your destinations, but count on at least the 9 month rule. To make it simple, we underscore the necessity of being fully vaccinated for all tours in 2022 and to have less than 9 months since your last vaccination at the time of travel. Please see our simplified restriction summary per most relevant countries on the downloadable pdf below.
