Abbey Road in France

We are delighted to share some hopeful news regarding our summer programs. As I am sure you have heard by now, on the 18th of April the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, declared his government’s intention to open France to American visitors who have been vaccinated. He stated:

“We are planning to gradually lift travel restrictions starting from the beginning of May, which means we will be working towards welcoming European and American citizens to France by this summer. We are doing everything we can to find a solution for US citizens to use a special pass or certificate that will allow them to enter France after they get fully vaccinated and get a negative Covid test result before arrival.”

 

For Abbey Road Program’s, this statement is one of many signs of hope that European travel is going to become a reality this summer. Abbey Road is moving forward with their program planning in NiceSt. LaurentGreek Islands and other locations in order to provide an exciting summer adventure to students. And if you’re looking for an unforgettable summer experience closer to home, look no further than our domestic programs in Quebec/Bar HarborHawaii, and Miami.

 

Important Reminder for International Travelers

Make sure to check the expiration date of your passport and file for renewal as soon as possible, if necessary! Remember that your passport has to be valid at least 6 months past your intended return date, so if you are planning to return to your motherlands in mid-August, passports have to be valid through mid-February of next year.

Contact Abbey Road Programs if you have already been vaccinated or if you are planning to do so in the nearest future. It appears that vaccinations may be required for summer travel to Europe, Canada and other destinations.
