COVID-19 Announcement

COVID-19 Announcement 2022-07-28T20:00:34-05:00


Although Israel and Jordan have recently relaxed entry requirements, the main priority of the Franciscan Monastery and George’s International Tours is the safety and health of our pilgrims, staff, and the communities we visit. As such, we require all travelers to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 prior to start of their trip. This precondition will remain in effect at least through December 2022 and is consistent with the requirements of a number of other tour operators.

Please note that the purchase of comprehensive travel insurance, that covers medical treatment for COVID-19 while overseas, is mandatory. George’s International can assist you with policies offered by their supplier or you may purchase a policy through another third party if desired.

We are committed to ensuring that the utmost efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are taken by the partners and suppliers that we use throughout your trip and are confident that the procedures we are implementing will ensure a safe and enjoyable pilgrimage for you.
