Travel Restrictions Update December 7, 2021
All restrictions on in-state travel have been lifted and normal processing of requests and approvals should be followed.
All out-of-state and international travel for university-related business or academic purposes will remain suspended until further notice, unless such travel is essential to the university and approved by the appropriate dean, appropriate vice president, or administrative designee. Reimbursement will not be processed from any funding source for out-of-state travel that does not include approval by the appropriate dean, appropriate vice president, or administrative designee.
All travel requests should be processed through the Sharepoint system. Please Note: All requested travel to a Department of State country with a Level 3 or 4 travel advisory will need to complete a request for a travel waiver as part of the AIRS submission process.
All university-sponsored domestic and international travelers must review CDC guidance for travelers and understand their associated travel risks before, during, and after travel.
Beginning Monday, December 6, 2021, the United States will tighten pre-departure testing protocols by requiring all inbound international travelers to test within one day of departure, regardless of nationality or vaccination status. Please note that this is a change from the previous requirement to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within three days of departure. Rapid tests are acceptable so long as they meet the stated requirements.
Please account for this requirement when securing your travel plans and while traveling internationally. It may impact your return trip and/or re-entry into the U.S.
All travel approvals are subject to change and possible revocation based on evolving public health and university guidance.
