Student international travel for university related purposes remains restricted. However, thanks to improved health and safety conditions in several countries, greatly expanded access to COVID-19 vaccines, and careful student planning, the University is allowing a number of students to travel abroad for university related purposes during the fall 2021 semester. All student international travel, including travel by graduate students and GME residents and fellows, is subject to the University Policy on Student International Travel and will continue to require a favorable review of local health, safety, and security conditions and individual student plans through 2021. See the ISO’s COVID Considerations Page for more information.

Faculty and staff are no longer restricted from international travel for university related purposes. Travel is subject to the University Policy on Faculty and Staff International Travel and requires registration.

Processing times for U.S. passports are significantly delayed: 14 weeks for routine passports and 10 weeks for expedited service.
