Verify if your travel plans require additional review

With respect to individual faculty, staff and graduate student travelers, Stanford University strongly recommends against, but does not prohibit, travel to countries where the U.S. Department of State has issued an official Travel Advisory of Level 4 (or “Do Not Travel”) or Level 3 (or “Reconsider Travel”) for either the country destination, or for the particular region or location of intended travel within the country destination, or where there is other reliable information of significant health or safety risks. The final decision about making a trip to such a country is up to the individual making the trip, however the University reserves the right to require the execution of an appropriate release or waiver before permitting such travel.

If you are traveling to a high-risk destination, we strongly recommend that you contact the Office of Risk Management (attn: Vinita Bali, vinitab@stanford.edu) to obtain advice on how to minimize risks during your travel.

Timeframe: 
At least 6 months before your trip (or before you consider an opportunity)
