Non-essential University Travel Canceled

Updated: 3/9/2020 – 5:45 p.m.

The University currently prohibits all non-essential University-related international travel and travel domestically to California and Washington State until further notice. All other domestic travel is strongly discouraged.  No upcoming non-essential travel will be reimbursed during this period.

University-sponsored spring break trips for students will be canceled. As to personal travel, we would urge you to keep in mind that travel restrictions can change rapidly with little notice. Depending on where you go, you may encounter challenges in departing a country or area, or face difficulties when you try to return. At the very least, you should plan on extra time for travel and register your trip with NYU Traveler to access Public Safety assistance while traveling.

US Travel Advisories and Restrictions

Updated: 3/24/2020 – 5:34 p.m.

The Department of State issued a Global Level 4 Health Advisory, which advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19. In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. U.S. citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel. Many countries are experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and implementing travel restrictions and mandatory quarantines, closing borders, and prohibiting non-citizens from entry with little advance notice. Airlines have cancelled many international flights and several cruise operators have suspended operations or cancelled trips. If you choose to travel internationally, your travel plans may be severely disrupted, and you may be forced to remain outside of the United States for an indefinite time frame.
