Gate 1 Vaccination Requirement

All travelers, including children, departing prior to November 1, 2023 are required to be fully vaccinated.

Travelers must bring proof of full vaccination (physical or digital) with them to be checked by the tour manager.

Travelers departing as of November 1, 2023 or later will not be required to be vaccinated.

Additional requirements may exist based on your itinerary and enforced by airlines, government agencies, and local businesses.
