Traveler Health & Well-Being
For 35 years we’ve guided travelers to the crossroads of Europe and Asia — adapting and evolving our on-trip protocols along the way to serve you best.
Update! The U.S. CDC has dropped the requirement for air travelers to have a negative COVID-19 test to enter the United States as of Sunday, June 12.
An update on trips to Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova: For three and a half decades we have cultivated peace through international travel. We are outraged by the unproved Russian aggression and heartbroken over the continued escalation of violence and the senseless suffering by so many in Ukraine. Travel operations in these countries are suspended due to the ongoing conflict. We will continue to pray for a peaceful resolution and to support individuals and organizations providing humanitarian aid to Ukraine–we hope you will join us.
The safety and well-being of our guests and teams is paramount and we will continue to develop and adopt safety and sanitation practices to all destinations as they evolve during this new era of travel.
One of the safest ways we are getting back to traveling the world responsibly is through vaccination. For peace of mind and ease of travel, all MIR guests are required to be fully-vaccinated against COVID-19 to travel with MIR, including starting in 2022, a booster shot administered no later than two weeks prior to departure. As booster guidance continues to evolve, this policy may be revisited accordingly.
As regulations continue to be lifted throughout our destinations from Tbilisi to Tallinn to Tirana to Tashkent, we will continue to closely monitor the rapidly changing landscape with updates from U.S. Department of State (DOS), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), and other professional sources. Many of our destinations no longer have any Covid-related entry requirements.
