COVID-19 Travel Guidelines

COVID-19 Travel Guidelines

Vive l’expérience values safety and health during our trip Programs. To that end, all Participants are highly encouraged to have a COVID-19 vaccination and eligible boosters. Vive will continue to adapt COVID-19 guidelines based on recommendations from the CDC and country-specific regulations.


Pre-departure: Any pre-travel testing required for entry to our destination must be completed by each Participant at their own cost. If any Participant tests positive prior to departure, they may be unable to travel if unable to satisfy CDC and country-specific regulations.


While traveling on Program: Some country destinations and/or locations, venues, or activities may require proof of vaccine or mask-wearing for entry or participation. Vive encourages Participants to practice good hygiene including hand-washing and use of hand sanitizer as needed. Mask use is optional unless required by our destination, but may be recommended during indoor visits, crowded locations, and anywhere transmission is potentially high. Participants should inform Vive Trip Leaders of any COVID-related symptoms while traveling. The CDC recommends that individuals with a known or suspected exposure to COVID-19 wear a well-fitting mask.

If a Participant tests positive during the trip Program: Participants who test positive will isolate according to local or CDC guidelines if there are no local guidelines in place. The CDC currently requires an individual who tests positive for COVID-19 to isolate until: 1) they are fever-free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and 2) until symptoms improve. Any testing requirements and/or extra costs associated with isolation will be at the Participant’s cost. Vive will assist Participants with contacting their travel insurance policy to arrange any necessary tests, treatment, etc. ​​
