AAT Kings COVID-19 Vaccination requirements from 31 December 2022.
The health and safety of our guests and our team members is our highest priority. All guests aged 16 years and over traveling with AAT Kings Guided Holidays through December 31, 2022 are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19, which may include a booster shot to keep the vaccination status current and valid, depending on the travel destination. Children not eligible for vaccination and/or booster at the time of travel must provide a verifiable and negative Covid-19 test result, taken within 72 hours prior to the start of a Guided Holiday (taking time zones into consideration) for all tours departing until December 31, 2022.
For guests traveling with AAT Kings Guided Holidays from 1 January 2023, Covid-19 vaccinations and boosters are highly recommended, but no longer required. Please note that regardless of time of travel guests will need to comply with specific vaccine and/or booster requirements imposed by airlines and/or authorities in the destination visited, as well as requirements for accessing restaurants and venues, which may be more restrictive than above. It is guests’ responsibility to ensure that they comply at all times with these requirements. No refunds will be given if guests are unable to undertake some or all of their vacation due to their failure to comply with these requirements.
This policy is subject to change at any time, without notice.
Please ensure you check the latest Australian and New Zealand Government travel requirements before traveling with us, which may include mandatory health declarations, use of face masks, entry permits, pre-approval, pre-departure testing and quarantine (possibly at your own expense). Please check your destination’s entry requirements, as well as requirements for accessing restaurants and venues to ensure that you’re prepared for your journey.
AAT Kings will continue to follow advice from government advisories and remain in touch with all our suppliers.
