Collette’s Online Travel
Requirements Resource

To help guests and travel professionals navigate the ever-changing list of international travel and testing requirements today, we have compiled the resources below to provide you with travel information and COVID-related requirements right at your fingertips.

Vaccination Requirement for International Travel

As many international destinations have introduced vaccination requirements for indoor experiences (museums, restaurants, attractions, etc.) even though the entry requirements for that destination do not require vaccination, vaccination will be required to travel on all international tours through December 31, 2022. Many countries are now requiring a booster dose at least 14 days before travel if the traveler was fully vaccinated more than 6 months before travel. As such, we strongly recommend that travelers plan to receive a booster dose to avoid any challenges entering the destination country or experiencing components of the tour. We will continue to review and update our policies as requirements change.

International Travel – Requirements for Departing and Returning to the U.S.

Collette has partnered with CIBT to create a self-service online resource for every destination that we travel to. This tool is continually updated with the latest information on COVID-specific travel and health requirements (vaccination documentation, testing, exemptions, arrival forms, etc.), visas, and other considerations for every destination that Collette services.

Destination-specific information may change frequently and without prior notice. It is each traveler’s responsibility to check this resource frequently, including prior to tour departure, for changes that may be applicable to the destination.

Travel entry requirements are provided by a third party source, and Collette is not responsible for content of the information provided.



International Travel – Mandatory COVID Testing Prior to U.S. Re-Entry

All travelers must present a negative COVID test result administered in advance of returning to the U.S. Please read carefully: return testing procedures vary depending on the destination of your tour:

Please note that return testing in the above-listed destinations will be at the expense of the individual guest, payable to the testing provider at time of service. See your Tour Manager for details on how to make payment. Prices range from USD $50 to $100 per person, depending on your destination. Transportation (where necessary) will be provided by Collette. If you purchased a self-test kit, you do not need to bring it with you on tour.

Travelers who are staying abroad on their own after their tour ends will need to make their own arrangements for the required U.S. return testing, at their own expense.

  1.  Recommended Purchase a self-test kit to bring with you on tour. Several major U.S. airlines (American, United, and Delta) have partnered with Optum, eMed, and Azova to assist passengers with re-entry testing. These companies sell test kits directly from their websites: Optum 2-pack or Optum 3-pack, eMed 6-pack or Azova individual test kits. For specific directions, including how to order, register for, and use the Optum/eMed test kits, please refer to this user guide. Please note that a smartphone with a camera and Wi-Fi capability is required for these options.
  2. Make your own arrangements in your destination. For guests that opt for this, please be advised that in-country testing may be more expensive per-person, appointment availability may be limited, and pre-registration and documentation may be required to schedule a test.

Domestic Travel Requirements

Please note this update in our policy: Full vaccination against COVID-19 will be required to travel on all domestic tours starting on November 1, 2021 through December 31, 2022*. We will continue to review and update our policies as requirements are lifted.

If your trip departs November 1, 2021 or after:

All guests traveling with Collette within the United States, regardless of destination or point of origin, must be able to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. Many countries are now requiring a booster dose at least 14 days before travel if the traveler was fully vaccinated more than 6 months before travel. As such, we strongly recommend that travelers plan to receive a booster dose to avoid any challenges entering the destination country or experiencing components of the tour. We will continue to review and update our policies as requirements change. Upon filling out and turning in the Wellness Declaration to the Tour Manager prior to joining the tour, each guest will be asked to show the Tour Manager their:
