Domestic Travel

 

Effective June 15, 2020, the university returned to normal approval processes for all domestic travel.

 

Trips for all domestic travel need to be created and approved through workflow. ProTrav is now available for the creation of domestic trips for purposes other than COVID-19.

International Travel

 

International travel will continue to be restricted. 

 

The Board of Regents, State of Iowa, rolling 30-day ban on university-sponsored international travel remains in effect, and travel to any area with high rates of infection should be avoided. As the COVID-19 pandemic is a rapidly evolving situation, the board will continue to evaluate the ban daily and provide additional guidance if needed.

Study Abroad and Student Travel

 

There will be no study abroad or university-sponsored student travel outside the U.S. through the end of the spring 2021 semester.

 

 

Due to the prevalence of COVID-19 in the United States and abroad, the Board of Regents has determined there will be no study abroad or university-sponsored student travel outside the U.S. through the end of the spring 2021 semester.

Personal Travel

 

You will not be expected to self-isolate after returning from travel at this time.

 

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.

Departures after Jan. 15, 2021

President Harreld may authorize individual faculty and staff international travel for departures after Jan. 15, 2021, if that travel is specifically tied to university responsibilities.

 

Additional information on this process can be found in the travel section of the FAQ page.
