Ukraine: The University is closely monitoring the evolving situation in Ukraine. No decisions have been made to cancel or change programmed travel at this time. The Office of the Vice-Provost for Global Affairs will continue to assess current and upcoming international travel plans in terms of US government advisories and news reports about impacts in the region. See UVA's Blog on the Crisis in Ukraine for additional information on the University's response.


Student international travel for university related purposes is subject to the requirements established in the University Policy on Student International Travel. All students, including graduate students and GME residents and fellows must complete an ISO education abroad program application or travel registration prior to departure. All student travel plans are subject to review. Itineraries that involve travel to destinations with a U.S. Department of State Travel Advisory of Level 3 or Level 4 or CDC Level 3 will require approval of a petition for an exemption to the University Policy on Student International Travel. See the ISO’s COVID Considerations Page and the Travel Alerts, Notice, and Warnings Page for more information.


Faculty and staff travel is subject to the University Policy on Faculty and Staff International Travel and requires registration.


The University is monitoring information on new variants and regional outbreaks of COVID-19 generally. National entry and exit requirements can change quickly. Travelers should confirm entry requirements for their destination before their departure date and make sure they have the most up-to-date requirements for re-entering the U.S.   


All university travelers are advised to be up to date on all COVID-19 booster shots before departure. See CDC booster guidance and be aware that some countries require a booster for entry. Travelers should also be aware that access to certain venues in some countries may require proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
