Mandatory Requirements for Travel
  • All CIE Tours guests are required to be fully vaccinated (defined as having received all recommended doses in their primary series of the COVID-19 vaccine) and carry digital or printed proof with them to show as needed.  Because the definition of “fully vaccinated” may change between now and departure, we recommend that all guests plan to receive a booster dose before travel. 
  • Each guest must complete a CIE Tours Pre-Trip Health Questionnaire. See a sample here, but the actual form will be included in your documentation packet to be sent approximately two weeks prior to departure.
  • Ensure that your passport is current and will be valid for at least six months after returning home from your trip. Note that the average processing time for a United States passport is usually six to eight weeks, but COVID-19 related delays may increase this to 12-18 weeks. Read more about applying for a passport.
Air Travel
  • Return flights to the U.S: In order to return to the United States, the CDC requires that all passengers present a negative COVID-19 viral test (PCR or rapid antigen), taken no more than 24 hours prior to departure, or proof of recovery from the virus within the last 90 days and a letter from a licensed healthcare provider stating that you were cleared to travel.  Read more here.
    • Airlines must confirm the negative test result or proof of recent recovery for all passengers prior to boarding and will deny boarding to passengers who do not provide documentation of a negative test or recovery.
    • For guests on guided coach vacations, CIE Tours will help to facilitate the necessary testing to meet CDC guidelines, but travelers will be responsible for cost of the test payable at time of administration. Your tour director will have more information while on tour.
  • Return flights to Canada: As of April 1, 2022, fully vaccinated travelers no longer need to provide a negative pre-entry COVID-19 test result to enter Canada. Read more here.
