Switzerland and COVID-19 requirements

Every traveler on this tour is required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to participate.

The second dose of a two-dose vaccine (or a single dose of a one-dose vaccine) must be administered at least 14 days before the start of the tour.

In addition, COVID-19 booster shots are required for travelers whose primary vaccination series was completed more than six months before the start of the tour. Booster shots must also be administered at least 14 days before the start of the tour.

Differing or additional requirements may be imposed by government authorities, airlines, operators, or local vendors. This may include the requirement to obtain a negative COVID-19 test prior to departure, in the destination, and before returning home.

Additional health and safety mandates—including but not limited to mask wearing and physical distancing—may be enforced.

If you are unable to comply, you may not be allowed to participate in the program, and neither Cornell's Adult University nor Criterion Travel will be able to provide refunds in these instances.

All costs associated with COVID-19 vaccination and testing are the responsibility of the participant. We reserve the right to modify these policies as the situation evolves.
