For the foreseeable future, the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to impact the safety and feasibility of international travel. A modified travel policy will remain in effect alongside Cornell’s existing Risk Management for International Travel policy. These policies will evolve as conditions change. Please check this page when you anticipate Cornell-related international travel and contact Cornell's International Travel Health and Safety team (ITHS) at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.

Cornell's International Travel Advisory and Response Team - ITART
Cornell's International Travel Advisory and Response Team (ITART) reviews the health, safety, and security situation in all elevated-risk destinations using various intelligence sources including International SOS, the U.S. State Department, the CDC, and experts in the Cornell community. Cornell community members required to petition ITART for approval to travel to an elevated-risk destination can do so via Cornell's Travel Registry (the application is built into the Registry process).
ITART has two main functions:
- to advise travelers and consider requests for exceptions to the International Travel Policy prior to international travel; and
- to respond, in conjunction with International SOS, to international emergency situations.
