ACIS Educational Tours Vaccine Policy for 2022 Travel

Thanksgiving is coming up and we have so much to be thankful for. I’m thankful for my family, my friends, and my colleagues. I’m thankful that we are back to traveling and continuing to change students’ and teachers’ lives—it’s what ACIS does best! 

As we look ahead to traveling in 2022, many destinations are now either denying entry to unvaccinated visitors or have introduced vaccination requirements in order to move freely within the country. Even in locations without such official regulations, delivering a safe and enjoyable travel experience for all becomes difficult to achieve in the close quarters of an educational group tour when some travelers are vaccinated while others are not. Given these restrictions, all ACIS Group Leaders and travelers aged 12 and above will need to be fully vaccinated in order to travel. Just like a passport, vaccination cards are going to be an essential travel item for the foreseeable future. 

For 2022 travel, requiring vaccinations is the responsible and logical policy. If it becomes clear that vaccines will continue to be necessary for 2023 travel, you can expect the policy to remain in place.  

We hope this policy gives all of our travelers peace of mind. There is now no reason to worry that you will be sharing a bus or hotel room with an unvaccinated traveler, and you don’t need to worry about missing out on any elements of your itinerary. 

I’ve been vaccinated for months, am now boosted up, and have loved recently traveling to Spain, Italy, Greece, the UK and France. And, as always, can’t wait to travel again.

See you out there somewhere.

Peter Jones In 1978, Peter Jones founded ACIS with a few colleagues, who all believed that travel changes lives. Knowing the important difference between a trip that’s mediocre and one that’s extraordinary, he built ACIS from a deep belief and understanding that ACIS group leaders and participants deserve the best—from itinerary development to hotels to perhaps most importantly, the people hired to guide teachers and students throughout the journey.

  1. Hello – This is comforting to know. Is there a process in place to submit a copy of my child’s vaccination card? She will be traveling with ACIS in March of 2022.

    1. Hi Mimi, So glad to hear this provides some peace of mind. When you log in to your child’s My Account you will find a link within the checklist to complete the form.

  2. Hello!My daughter is traveling with ACIS in Feb 2022. She has had two doses of Pfizer (I posted the most recent dose in her account). Is she required to receive a booster?

    1. Hi Kim, Your daughter will need to meet the vaccination entry requirement for the destinations she is visiting. I wish her a fantastic trip!
