Student International Travel: Coronavirus & Passports


10/18/2021 - 4:00pm

Student international travel for university related purposes remains restricted. However, thanks to improved health and safety conditions in several countries, greatly expanded access to COVID-19 vaccines, and careful student planning, the University is allowing a number of students to travel abroad for university related purposes during the fall 2021 semester. All student international travel, including travel by graduate students and GME residents and fellows, is subject to the University Policy on Student International Travel and will continue through fall 2021 to require a favorable review of local health, safety, and security conditions and individual student plans. See the COVID Considerations page for more information.

January Term programs are not being offered in 2022. Education abroad programs in other terms are available, and COVID considerations will be updated as preparations continue.

Passport processing times are currently significantly delayed: 14 weeks for routine processing; 10 weeks for expedited.  If you are a US citizen interested in participating in education abroad in 2022, apply for your passport now. See UVA Programs for more details, and the State Department for details and to apply.
