University Sponsored International Travel Updates


Effective May 1, 2022, university-sponsored or grant-funded travel abroad for fully vaccinated faculty and staff no longer requires a travel exception request by Risk Management for travel to locations identified by the U.S. Department of State (U.S. DOS) and the CDC as Level 1, 2 or 3 advisories. University-sponsored travel to locations with U.S. DOS or CDC Level 4 advisories require completion of a Travel Exception Request Form and advance review by Risk Management at least 21 days prior to planned travel.

For your safety, all university-sponsored or grant-funded international travel must be registered by submitting a travel itinerary to the International SOS MyTrips system. Detailed instructions can be found here.

These policies are subject to change as the university remains in alignment with changing guidance from the U.S. DOS and public health authorities. 

To view active travel alerts, review country-specific entry restrictions and quarantine protocols, visit LMU’s International SOS page and click on the International SOS Portal. Please always refer to the latest guidance by L.A. County Public Health before traveling.
