Where can GVI participants travel right now? Below you will find a full list of the countries that GVI operates in that have reopened their borders for travellers.

Participants from around the world are wondering which countries and GVI bases they can travel to right now, and the good news is that many countries have started to relax restrictions, reopen borders and many are now accepting travellers.
