Note: Sponsored outbound international travel for Yale College students will be governed by the Yale University Travel Policy for Yale College Students (“Travel Policy”). The Travel Policy evaluates international travel restrictions on a country-specific basis.


FAQ: What should I consider while planning a fellowship application for an international experience?

  • Review the Travel Policy.
  • Review the CDC travel recommendations for your intended country and local news sources.
  • Refer to your intended destination country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and/or Embassy website for detailed entry requirements. In some cases, even if the Travel Policy allows for travel to a particular location, the destination country itself may limit entry based on the traveler’s citizenship and where the traveler has been, including transit countries.
  • Research the country’s response to COVID-19 outbreaks (e.g. testing availability, social distancing, mandatory face masks, quarantines, the availability to purchase PPE, lockdowns, positivity rate, the treatment facilities, and the capacity to respond to an increased outbreak).

FAQ: What do I need to know about COVID-19 vaccinations for Yale funded travel abroad?

Please see Yale University's vaccination requirements for travel, particularly the vaccination requirements that appear in the "University-Sponsored Travel" section.
