Some destinations have fewer requirements or restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers. We have included information about what it means to be fully vaccinated and your options for travel if you are fully vaccinated. Tripmasters recommends that clients who travel be fully vaccinated.
a) The CDC considers people fully vaccinated 2 full weeks after their final vaccine dose is administered: This period applies after either a single-dose vaccine (such as Johnson & Johnson) or the second dose of a two-dose vaccine (such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines). Before this period, people are considered only partially protected.
b) Travel service providers (airlines, hotels, train companies, private transfer companies, activity and tour providers, etc) adhere to this same timeline. What that means for you, as a traveler, is that if you travel and you are not vaccinated or your vaccination timeline is incomplete, some providers may deny you service.
a) Tripmasters wants all of our clients to enjoy their trips safely and responsibly. We follow all suggested guidelines put forth by local, federal, and international health authorities to help limit the spread of COVID-19, and we sincerely hope our clients do as well.
b) Because fully vaccinated travelers face fewer health risks and fewer restrictions during and after travel, we wholeheartedly recommend that all our travelers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
c) Non-vaccinated (or non-fully vaccinated) travelers may face denial of service (and any applicable fees as a result) from some providers.
a) The short answer is yes. The United States and most countries are open to fully vaccinated travelers (with varying local guidelines).
b) The conditions of COVID-19 and variants differ from country to country, so we still recommend being vigilant and understanding the requirements of any country you plan to visit.
