U-M Travel Warning and Travel Restriction Locations
The University of Michigan regularly monitors global health, safety and security information to set destination risk levels for U-M travelers. There are two risk levels:
- University Travel Warning: Travel is unadvisable due to significant health, safety or security risks.
- University Travel Restriction: U-M related travel is generally prohibited due to extreme health, safety or security risks.
The travel requirements for each of these levels will vary by traveler type (e.g. faculty, staff, graduate students and undergraduate students). View U-M Safety Plan Proposal and Worksheet.
The Vice Provost for Global Engagement and Interdisciplinary Academic Affairs, on behalf of the Provost’s Office, and the International Travel Oversight Committee (ITOC) review a variety of health, safety and security resources when placing a country or region under a University Travel Warning or Restriction. These resources include U-M faculty and staff area experts, peer institution travel warnings, government security reports and non-governmental organizations.
