UTHealth Houston Travel in Restricted Areas
Effective April 22, 2010, The University of Texas System announced a suspension of programs and travel to restricted countries. When planning international travel, each traveler must consult the U.S. Department of State's list of travel warnings to see if warnings apply to the travel destination. If the country is currently under a Travel Warning, and the traveler still wishes to proceed, the traveler must apply for exemption from restrictions, register for International SOS, and complete a travel waiver.
For comprehensive information on UTHealth international travel procedures, including required forms, please see the International Travel Procedures website.
