COVID Policy

What is Therapy Abroad’s Policy with Regard to Covid-19?

Therapy Abroad has developed a comprehensive risk management plan for each of the countries we work in. In 2021 and 2022 we were able to run programs in Belize, Thailand, and the Dominican Republic safety without incident by following these safety guidelines and with cooperation from our local partners and students. These plans are available upon request. As part of our strategy, we have implemented

We recognize not every student, family, or university will allow travel this year, despite the risk mitigation outlined above. Should students apply for 2023 programs, and then choose to defer to a future program, we would be happy to move that student’s application to a program with a later start date.

Is Therapy Abroad Requiring Covid-19 Vaccines?

No, beginning January 2023, Therapy Abroad highly recommends the COVID-19 vaccine and all other vaccines recommended by the CDC and local healthcare providers, however, students and staff are not required to be vaccinated against Covid-19.

The WHO and US CDC agree that the vaccine helps reduce the risk of serious illness and helps prevent the spread of COVID-19. 99%

At Therapy Abroad, we also believe that we are all part of a global community and that we have some shared responsibilities as part of that community. Our programs are all about people –working with people, helping people, sharing ideas with people, and learning from people. Vaccines will help us continue our work by

What happens if I test positive before I return to the USA?

The CDC no longer requires all passengers traveling to or returning to the United States to test negative for Covid-19. In the unlikely event that a student is ill and does test positive, Therapy Abroad has pre-arranged accommodations and negotiated pricing that includes the length of accommodation with three meals, private airport transfers, groceries, toiletries, incidentals, daily home health and counseling support, and 24/7 in-person staff support. We would not leave any student behind without our staff. Our number one goal is always the safety of our participants and no one will ever be left on their own.

Covid-19 Insurance

With some continued uncertainty remaining about traveling, testing requirement changes, and the fluid nature of this pandemic, we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance that covers Covid-19 and canceling for any reason insurance. SquareMouth is a travel insurance search engine that we highly recommend. For less than $200 students can purchase insurance that covers the entire cost of their trip (including flights) and can cancel for any reason. Most plans cover. Follow this link and enter your trip information for quotes
