International Travel Policy Update

UNLV has resumed international travel for fully vaccinated travelers. International travel requests will be considered to countries designated a Level 3 or below by the U.S. Department of State and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Before submitting a request to travel, please review the new COVID-19 international travel requirements by the U.S. government.

  • Faculty, staff, and students traveling to a foreign country for purposes related to their employment or academic fulfillment with UNLV must comply with International Travel Policy, Title 4, Chapter 23 of the Board of Regents Handbook.
  • Submit all travel requests at least three weeks prior to departure. Please visit the UNLV International Travel website for details on how to submit a request.
  • The Travel Risk Assessment Committee, which is required to follow the guidance and recommendations by the U.S. Department of State, and CDC for international travel, will continue to review exceptions.
  • Students on an employment contract (i.e., graduate assistant, teaching assistant, research assistant, or fellow) must follow the same procedures outlined on the UNLV International Travel website
  • Students not on an employment contract traveling with faculty or for academic fulfillment must contact the International Programs office for approval.

UNLV is required to be compliant with the Board of Regents policy. These procedures help ensure compliance, and help protect faculty, staff, and students involved in any work-related international travel. Work-related travel includes conferences, performances, collaborations, sponsored projects, research work, etc. Travel to U.S. Territories is considered international travel. Domestic travel and travel solely for personal reasons are excluded from this policy.
