Frequently Asked Questions


Are fully vaccinated travelers exempt from physical distancing guidelines?
No. Even though fully vaccinated travelers will be able to move around internationally more freely, it is important to wear masks on flights, and maintain social distancing. These rules may loosen up as more people will get vaccinated. However, global herd immunity will most likely not be achieved this year.
 
Can fully vaccinated people still transmit COVID-19?
Yes. This is the reason why vaccinated people should still wear masks in public and maintain social distancing.
 
Can I still get sick if I am fully vaccinated?
No. A vaccine prevents you from developing complications, but you may still transmit the virus to people who have not been vaccinated yet.
 
What are the advantages of traveling fully vaccinated?
If you are fully vaccinated, you may skip the quarantine period required by different states. However, travel rules are changing constantly. It is advised to choose one single travel destination, instead of a multiple-country tour, to avoid different testing and quarantine rules.
