Student Travel and Study Abroad
International travel is currently limited. The university will continue to monitor travel risks and modify guidelines as conditions change.
Undergraduate study abroad program enrollments will not be approved for departures through Aug. 1, 2021 to ensure adequate time for pre-departure preparations.
Undergraduate study abroad program enrollments departing after Aug. 1 and before Aug. 15 require a high-risk travel proposal to International Programs for consideration.
Undergraduate, graduate and professional students traveling for a university purpose may submit an international travel registration request to International Programs for consideration. Approved student travel is entered in the ProTrav system by International Programs.
Student travel to destinations with a U.S. Department of State travel advisory risk rating of level 3 or higher must submit a high-risk travel proposal for consideration as part of travel registration or study abroad enrollment. High-risk travel proposals are reviewed by the Travel Advisory Committee, and committee recommendations are shared with the university Provost or a designated delegate for final decision making.
With community and statewide spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are working under the expectation that all university employees are at risk of exposure and therefore will not be expected to self-isolate after returning from travel at this time.
The University of Iowa strongly encourages, but does not require, that individuals traveling for university purposes be vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to their departure. Some countries may require proof of vaccination to gain entry. Some institutions abroad may require proof of vaccination for enrollment or attendance. The university recommends that travelers who are vaccinated carry proof of vaccination when traveling abroad.
Some airlines and countries require a negative COVID-19 test for travel. Check directly with your airline well in advance of departure for guidance, as requirements may change with little notice as the pandemic evolves. Check for country-specific information regarding vaccinations, testing, and travel restrictions on the U.S. Embassy website for your international destination.
