In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all UW-Madison-sponsored outbound travel by students and employees is suspended until further notice. Exceptions to this policy will only be considered for an employee whose purpose meets a high standard of essential travel, defined as that which supports timely human health and medical outcomes that cannot otherwise be rescheduled.
Additionally, students are precluded by the UW-Madison International Travel Policy from traveling to locations under a U.S. Department of State level 3 or 4 travel advisory or a CDC level 3 travel warning notice. Currently, this includes the overwhelming majority of the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
