Can I travel internationally?

All University-affiliated international travel involving students, faculty and staff is suspended until further notice. Given the uncertainly due to COVID-19, we recommend that University personnel avoid making travel reservations in order to avoid the costs and disruption that might come with future cancellations. If travel is essential, requests should be screened by and submitted through unit executives to Executive Vice President and Provost Nicholas P. Jones at provost@psu.edu and include a description of why the travel is mission critical. For the Applied Research Laboratory, essential travel will be reviewed by Senior Vice President for Research Lora G. Weiss at OSVPRTravel@psu.edu. For the College of Medicine, essential travel will be reviewed by Interim Dean of the College of Medicine Kevin Black at dean@pennstatehealth.psu.edu.
