Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ISSS does not recommend traveling internationally. Please keep in mind that travel restrictions can occur at any time and you may not be able to return to the U.S. as planned. Students who travel during this time do so at their own risk. We would suggest reaching out to the nearest consulate or embassy for guidance to advise regarding your travel plans. Additionally, re-entry to the US will be at the discretion of the CBP officer. Due to the evolving situation with COVID-19, we would also recommend that you contact your airline regarding travel advisories/restrictions, in addition to keeping up to date with the most recent information posted on the Travel.State.Gov website. All foreign adult travelers to the U.S. are required to show proof of full vaccination. For detailed information, please review
