Travel Warnings and Restrictions
UNLV sets guidelines relating to how, when, and where faculty/staff may travel for UNLV- associated travel as it pertains to the U.S. State Department Travel Advisories or Alerts and/or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Health Notices. Accordingly, UNLV observes the following policy:
If the United States Department of State or the Centers for Disease Control issue a Travel Advisory, Alert or Health Notice for a particular country or region within a country, UNLV may suspend approval for travel by UNLV faculty/staff in that country, as well as travel through that country, as long as the warning is in effect, unless an application for a waiver of such policy is granted. A similar policy is in effect for UNLV- related student travel. These policies exist in deference to U.S. State Department and Centers for Disease Control security expertise, and are observed to maintain the safety of UNLV Faculty, staff, and students on UNLV-related travel.
If a faculty or staff member is already in the country or region when a Travel Advisory or Alert that prohibits, forbids, or recommends deferral of all but essential travel to a particular country or region is issued, the Travel Risk Assessment Committee will make a recommendation to the Executive Vice President and Provost, whose decision will be final.
It is recommended that all faculty and staff traveling for NSHE/UNLV-related activities register their international trips with the Department of State using the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
