Travel to elevated-risk destinations

  • Student travel to elevated-risk destinations is prohibited without approval and will result in withdrawal or repayment of any university funds provided.
  • Pre-travel approval should be sought 6-8 weeks prior to travel.
  • ITART will review petitions to examine the traveler’s experience in the destination, their understanding of the specific risks associated with their plans, the steps being taken to mitigate those risks, and the traveler’s support network at their destination.
  • Travelers may be called for an in-person meeting to discuss their plans prior to approval.

The petition to travel to elevated-risk counties is now incorporated into the standard Travel Registry

For information, refer to Cornell Policy 8.5—Risk Management for International Travel
