Summer 2022 Travel Guidance for International Students and Scholars

Before you travel abroad:

  • Confirm that you meet the entry requirements for your travel destination(s), and for all flight transfer locations, which may include showing proof of a specific type of negative COVID-19 test, showing proof of being fully vaccinated, etc. Check embassy or consulate websites of your destination(s) for updated information, and be aware that entry requirements can change with little notice.
  • Identify suitable COVID-19 test sites before travel.
  • Confirm that you have the documents needed for re-entry. Request an I-20 or DS-2019 travel signature from the International Center if your current travel signature will be more than one year old when you re-enter the U.S. For OPT students, the travel signature should be no more than 6 months old.
  • If you would like to take masks and rapid tests with you: free, rapid at-home antigen COVID-19 tests and KN95 masks are available on campus by presenting an M-Card at select campus testing sites (Palmer Commons, Pierpont Commons, Ross and the 1310 N University Ct building). More information on how to obtain a rapid test elsewhere is available on Campus Maize and Blueprint.
