As of March 11, entry to the USA has been suspended for most foreign nationals who have been in certain European countries at any point during the 14 days prior to their scheduled arrival in the United States. For a full list of suspended countries and more information regarding this suspension, please click here.

To ensure the continued wellbeing of our current students and center staff, we are introducing the following policy, effective immediately:

  • Any incoming students from Center for Disease Control (CDC) Level 3 countries (China, Iran, South Korea) will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival to the USA and prior to starting classes with Berlitz.

In some locations, there may be additional requirements in accordance with state regulations.

We highly recommend that students from CDC Level 3 countries change their flights to arrive at least two weeks before their scheduled start date.

Each Berlitz center will be contacting impacted incoming students with more details about local hotels and recommended health care facilities that can provide students with the required medical documentation.

We are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Our highest priority is the health and safety of our students, staff and instructors.

At this point in time, all Berlitz Learning Centers remain open and lessons are scheduled as per usual.

To ensure the wellbeing of our entire community we have implemented the following actions at each of our Learning Centers:

  • Routine environmental cleaning, including actively cleaning all frequently touched surfaces with disinfectant wipes each day
  • Provision of hand soap and disinfectant wipes to students and staff.

We also ask our students to adhere to the following guidelines when coming to one of our learning centers:

  • Practice ‘social distancing’ while at the learning center by making every effort to sit at least 6 feet from your instructor and other students
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water

If you are feeling sick, please do not come to the learning center. We can reschedule your lessons or in most cases conduct your lessons online via video call. Please get in touch with your local learning center to facilitate this.

In times like this, we are particularly grateful for the strength and togetherness of the Berlitz community. Please be assured we will continue to carefully follow the recommended guidelines of the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO).
