On August 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of State (USDOS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) rescinded their blanket global health advisories for COVID-19 that included all countries worldwide. Now, both the USDOS and CDC rate each country individually. Most countries are classified as “Level 3: Reconsider Travel” due to COVID-19.
At this time, all international travel approval must still be obtained through the Restricted Regions process and requires approval from the Senior Vice Provost for Global Engagement.
Faculty, staff and students must petition for international travel through the university’s Restricted Regions process and submit a supplemental COVID-19 travel waiver. Approved travelers will need to follow all quarantine requirements in the destination country and upon return to the U.S., Austin and the UT campus.
Requests are due at least four to six weeks in advance of your departure date. Only university-related travel requires approval; we do not monitor personal travel. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
