Student International Travel & Coronavirus

The University of Virginia remains committed to providing all students with global education opportunities which include study, research, and internships abroad. The University continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on health and safety conditions abroad, the travel industry, vaccine availability, nation-state entry requirements, and requirements for re-entering the U.S. These conditions and requirements are fluid and may remain so for some time. As conditions improve, the University will revise the current restriction on student international travel.

Summer 2021 Update: UVA faculty-led programs have been cancelled, and no student international travel for Student Projects Abroad will be approved. Students may be able to study abroad this summer (after May 31) through outside programs and the UVA in Valencia program, which is operated by an in-country provider, pending review of local health, safety, and security conditions and student plans. 

See our COVID Considerations page for the latest education abroad updates for Summer '21, Fall '21, and Academic Year '21-'22.

See UVA's Coronavirus Information for the latest University information and resources.
