Update regarding International Travel and Covid-19

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Utah Valley University has officially cancelled all travel through December 31, 2020 (with possible extension beyond). International travel to countries throughout the world is currently under a Center for Disease Control (CDC) Level 3 Warning with an indefinite timeframe. 

The Office for Global Engagement will not approve international travel unless warnings are lifted. All approvals for international travel past Fall 2020 will be tentative and subject to reversal at any time. We highly discourage potential travelers to make any further international travel purchases or commitments.  Airline companies, hotels, and travel agencies may not offer a refund in the case of travel disruptions or cancelations.  Most countries currently require a 14-day mandatory quarantine upon arrival.

Per UVU Policy 252, approved travelers may be required to return (at department or personal traveler expense) if US State Department or CDC warnings are unexpectedly reinstated even after travel has commenced. UVU’s international insurance carrier does not cover costs for travel disruptions like quarantines or missed flights occasioned by COVID-19. Remember that departments and/or individual travelers (faculty/staff/students) are responsible for all non-recoverable costs of cancelled programs.
