Please note, there are currently travel restrictions in place in many countries due to the ongoing 2019 coronavirus outbreak may affect your travel. We've compiled some resources to assist you in determining whether you decide to travel internationally. As always, if you have any concerns, please contact the Office of Global Services. Any email updates sent from our office will continue to be posted also on our Immigration Updates and Events page.

Current Travel Advisories

NYU urges you to keep in mind that travel restrictions have and can change rapidly with little notice. Depending on where you go, you may encounter challenges in departing a country, or face difficulties when you try to return. At the very least, you should plan on extra time for travel and keep up to date on developments at your destination as well as in the country to which you are returning.

Please note that in addition to COVID-19 travel advisories, students and scholars should also be aware of US Presidential Executive Orders and the impact on our community and Go Local eligibility requirements.

Items to Consider if and when You Travel Internationally

  • NYU has prohibited upcoming, non-essential, international travel that is sponsored by NYU.
  • NYU urges you to reconsider any personal international travel as well. The CDC recommends self-quarantine for up to 14 days following any international travel. Additionally, there is currently an entry ban for all non-citizens of the US (except lawful permanent residents and immediate family members of US citizens and lawful permanent residents) who have visited the listed countries. Please note: This entry ban is applied even to those with valid F-1 and J-1 visas.
  • As always, we recommend that you bring a copy of your passport and your visa or entry stamp with you in your carry-on.
  • Add your international travel plans to NYU Traveler.
