Coronavirus (COVID-19) University Travel Guidance

University Moratorium on Travel

Community members who have traveled for personal reasons are subject to self-quarantine and testing requirements. Please visit our Healthy and Safety Information page for the latest requirements.


The university has suspended ALL university-sponsored or related student travel until further notice, including the cancellation of Spring 2021 Office of Global Education study abroad and exchange programs.


The university has suspended all university-sponsored and supported international and domestic air and train travel and includes travel funded by a grant, foundation, company or another university. Any travel booked during this moratorium, regardless of when it is scheduled to take place, will not be eligible for reimbursement.  

If a faculty or staff member believes there is a compelling university-related reason to book future international or domestic travel, they should consult with the office of the Provost or campus Executive Vice President (for Medical and Law Centers), Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (for staff of University Services), or the Vice President and Chief of Staff (for direct reports to the President) to request an exception. If travel is authorized during this moratorium, special instructions for booking can be found on the Georgetown Travel Services website.

These decisions were made in the interest of the health and safety of our community, taking into account current public health guidance and the dynamic nature of the COVID-19 domestic and global response. We will continue to reassess this guidance and will update these temporary restrictions as appropriate.
