Travel Advisory re. COVID-19

Updated October 13, 2020

Our priority at OFFBEAT is the safety and wellbeing of our participants, both on domestic and international workshops. 

As such, in light of COVID-19, we are taking every precaution to assess the situation in each region we plan to travel to for workshops, and areas that might impact travel to those destinations. We are in touch with our trusted operators on the ground, frequently checking advisories and restrictions, and determining our course of action on a case by case basis.

The situation with COVID-19 changes daily. Media networks may not be the best source of information as we make our decisions. As we have concrete information, we will release it to our participants. In order to prevent any rash response to the situation with COVID-19, we are first examining the information available to us instead of cancelling or postponing any trips prematurely. 

Our best option is to continue to communicate with our partners in the destinations we are travelling to, and stay on top of any government-imposed closures that might impact the travel plans of our leaders and participants. 

At this time, we are treating each workshop individually. Notes specific to each destination we plan to visit in the near future can be found below. Please see our Terms and Conditions for the finer details.

We recommend you contact your insurance provider with any questions regarding insurance for any booked flight and other travel costs. Continue to take normal health precautions: washing hands frequently, using alcohol-based hand sanitizer, and ensuring you have all relevant vaccinations up to date. 

Entry/Exit Requirements:

From travel.gc.ca:

In an attempt to limit the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), some governments have implemented special entry and exit restrictions for their territory. Before travelling, verify if the local authorities of both your current location and destination have implemented any specific restrictions related to this situation. These include entry requirements, quarantines, border closures and flight suspensions.

  • Monitor the media for the latest information
  • Contact your airline or tour operator to determine if the situation will disrupt your travel plans
