All embarking crew and guests must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Now and for the immediate future, our health and safety protocols include the requirement for all guests and crew to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, at least two weeks prior to sailing. Only guests with vaccines approved by the WHO will be permitted to board. A copy of the vaccination certificate must be uploaded to ‘My Silversea’. The vaccination certificate or printed copy must be shown during the check-in and embarkation process.
As the global travel landscape continues to evolve, we will require that each guest ensures their COVID-19 vaccination status is up to date for both their country of residence and the intended countries they plan to visit.
Similar to testing, we have seen that destinations across the globe are now updating validity dates for vaccination series. Many countries have differing rules (both based on residency and as entry requirements), with most now indicating an “up to date” COVID-19 vaccine includes an additional dose anywhere from 90 to 270 days past the original series completion date. Quite simply, the vaccine will no longer be considered up to date unless an additional dose has been received after a certain time has elapsed from the completion of the primary series. So while the booster (or an additional dose) is not necessarily a requirement to sail with us, an up to date vaccination series is. By way of example for our guests residing in the US, please click here to understand the CDC’s definition of “up to date.”
Please know that the health and safety of our guests, as well as that of our crew and the communities we visit, remain a priority for us at Silversea. Rest assured that we will continue to work closely with relevant governing bodies and health authorities to navigate this evolving landscape, as new health recommendations are issued and as the situation advances.
Until then, click here to understand which vaccines are currently accepted, and for up to date information. I also encourage you to contact your Silversea representative for assistance with any questions you may have.
