Where can I travel?

Last updated: November 2021

Participants from around the world are wondering which countries and GVI bases they can travel to right now, and the good news is that many countries have started to relax restrictions, reopen borders and many are now accepting travellers.

This information is based on information currently available. Information is subject to change. Please ensure you check with the local authorities for the countries you intend to visit as well as your home country requirements for the most up-to-date advice.

To help get you on your next GVI adventure, we’ve put together a checklist to help you navigate travel today.

Q: Do I need to obtain a negative COVID-19 test for my program?

A: Unless approved in advance, GVI requires all participants to submit a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of their program start date. Fully vaccinated participants can submit a lateral flow test in lieu of a PCR test.

Q: Do I need to be vaccinated for my GVI program?

A: Unless approved in advance, from 1 December, GVI requires all participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the WHO.

Q: I need a COVID-19 test to return to my home country, will GVI help me get this test?

A: If required, GVI will facilitate your COVID-19 test for your return home. We will take you to the nearest testing centre with sufficient time to obtain your result before your departure.
