Can I go or do I need additional reviews to travel to a specific location?

For faculty, staff and graduate students, Stanford University strongly recommends against, but does not prohibit, travel to countries where the U.S. Department of State has issued a Level 3 ("Reconsider travel") or Level 4 ("Do not travel") for either the country destination, or for the particular region or location of intended travel within the country destination. There are no restrictions for travel to countries or regions within a country that are rated Level 1 ("Exercise normal precautions") or Level 2 ("Exercise increased caution").

For undergraduate students, similarly there are no restrictions for travel to countries and/or regions within a country that are Level 1 ("Exercise normal precautions") or Level 2 ("Exercise increased caution"). However, if the country destination is a Level 1 or 2 and there are regions within the country that are Level 3 ("Reconsider travel") or Level 4 ("Do not travel"), additional steps will be required. Stanford-sponsored or Stanford-organized trips to Level 3 or 4 countries are prohibited for undergraduate students. See below for an easy to follow color coded assessment guide.
