There is a range of resources available to Tulane community members seeking support for travel and activities abroad. Tulane Global is here to work collaboratively with you and support you before, during, and after your trip.

 

 

Travel to High Risk Destinations

All students, faculty, and staff traveling to a high risk destination outside of the U.S. as part of Tulane-related activity must obtain prior authorization from Tulane Global. This is to assess risk and provide support to Tulane travelers.

High-risk travel destinations include countries or regions classified as Level 3–High Risk or Level 4–Extreme Risk by the U.S. Department of State or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for a non-COVID reason. It also includes countries where Tulane’s insurer has excluded coverage due to high risk unless a specific waiver is obtained pre-departure.

Current High Risk Travel Destinations

Travelers must obtain Tulane Global approval prior to departure and should submit a form at least one month in advance of travel. Submit your form for High Risk Travel here.
