Starting 8th November 2021, travel to the US will resume for the UK, Ireland and other countries affected by the COVID-19 Travel ban.
Effective November 1st 2021, all our participants will need to be fully vaccinated in order to take part in the programmes

  • All international travellers will need to prove they are fully vaccinated before boarding a flight (for UK this will mean at least 2 weeks past your second vaccination).
  • They will also require a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours of departure for the USA
  • Embassies in Liondon, Belfast and Dublin are starting to open up for interviews from November 15th for visa processing, but we expect there to be significant delays due to the extended closures. Some other European Embassies have already announced dates to re-open in the 2nd week of November.
