A Guide to Travel in 2022
We know travelers are eager to cross borders that have been closed over the last two years. This page is meant to be a useful tool for identifying which Travel For Teens destinations are open to US travelers and their respective entry requirements.
Non-US Citizens are welcome to join any of our open enrollment programs. Non-US Citizens should contact their respective embassy to determine their eligibility both from a health passport/vaccine requirement stance as well as what Visa documentation is needed.
Unvaccinated travelers are welcome to join our domestic programs in the US, however, they are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated. Some domestic locations, such as California, may have vaccine requirements to participate fully in the itinerary and stay at our accommodations. Please consult the list below for any domestic locations where there may be health requirements for the participants.
It is possible that vaccine requirements could change between the time of enrollment and departure. TFT cannot accommodate participants unless in compliance with destination requirements for vaccines, which at this time include all foreign destinations and certain domestic trips (where there may be rules for activities or other restraints).
Should destination requirements change families should be prepared to either choose an alternative program or meet vaccination requirements to fully participate in the itinerary.
The definition of a fully vaccinated traveler varies by destination. There are three definitions of a fully vaccinated traveler that are subject to change: a.) two weeks past your second dose of two dose regiments b.) two weeks after single-dose regiments or c.) boosted with a 3rd dose. Please note, option c is the most restrictive and some destinations will only consider a traveler fully vaccinated if they have received a booster if too much time has passed between their last dose of the vaccine. The amount of time varies by destination, with the average time currently between 7 and 9 months from the second dose. If a traveler is outside of this period, their fully vaccinated status is invalid.
This page will be frequently updated, but as entry requirements are constantly changing please contact us to confirm current information. We encourage all interested families to schedule a time to talk to us here or to call us 7 days a week at 888-457-4534.
