COVID-19

COVID-19 UPDATE (March 20, 2022):

As human beings, we crave freedom, exploration, the ability to see new sights, meet new people, and experience things that have been on our bucket lists for a long time. We are excited to be traveling again, we are here for you, and we will provide you with moments and memories that will last a lifetime.

We understand that you may continue to have several questions about how traveling with us is being affected by Covid-19. As our travelers’ safety and health are our top priorities, here are the current requirements:

Domestic Travel with Women of the Midwest:

Regardless of destination or point of origin, all travelers must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to travel with us. All travelers must provide proof of vaccination, including the traveler’s name and final dose given at least 14-days before the tour departure date. Proof can be a photocopy or electronic vaccination record document issued by either: (a) the health authority that administered the vaccination (i.e., U.S. CDC’s Vaccination Record Card); (b) the traveler’s medical provider that administered the vaccination, or (c) approved electronic certification from your county or health provider. You should carry your vaccination card with you at all times during your domestic journey with us. Please note specific destinations may additionally require:

  • Proof of Negative Covid-19 test including a verifiable negative/not detected diagnostic Covid PCR or Antigen Test with FDA Emergency Use Authorization, showing date and time of test prior to departure. Electronic or paper proof is acceptable; the timeframe of the test varies.
  • Proof of recovery from Covid-19 should include a copy of a positive test result dated 90 days prior to the end of your tour and also a copy of documentation from your health care provider that you were cleared to end isolation/quarantine. This written documentation must include your name and the date of your positive test.
  • Other requirements (i.e., proof of a Covid-19 booster). 

Travelers should monitor these requirements as well. We will continue to review and update our requirements as restrictions are updated.

International Travel with Women of the Midwest:

For international travel, we follow the specific country/countries requirements. Non-vaccinated travelers are welcome as long as they comply with the requirements upon signing up for a tour with us and at the time of departure. 

Should a country unexpectedly close its borders to non-vaccinated travelers, we will assist with finding a replacement (re-sell the spot). A refund will not take place before a replacement has been found and the new traveler has paid in full.

Depending on your destination, there could be additional country-specific and/or airline requirements for testing prior to travel.

For international travel, a negative Covid-19 test is required to return to the United States. Women of the Midwest will assist all travelers with this arrangement.
