Eligibility & Requirements

Egypt currently has a U-M Travel Warning risk rating, with specific regions having a U-M Regional Travel Restriction risk rating.

  1. Determine whether the cities or locations you visit are within a Travel Warning area or within a Regional Travel Restriction area.
  2. For cities or locations within a Travel Warning area:
  1. For cities or locations within a Travel Restriction area:
    • Undergraduate students are prohibited from traveling to a Travel Restriction destination for UMRT.
    • Graduate students on UMRT are eligible to travel to this location after completing the following requirements:
      1. Register your travel with U-M (For students who applied for their program through M-Compass, your program application is your travel registration.)
      2. For individual travel abroad, submit an Individual Safety Plan at least 3 weeks before departure. (See Travel Health Plan & Safety Plan Process for details.)
        • For students participating in Group Travel Abroad, your group leader will submit a “Group Safety Plan” on behalf of the participants; meaning individual students do NOT need to submit an Individual Safety Plan. (See Group Travel Requirements for details.)
      3. Enroll in U-M Travel Abroad Health Insurance for the travel duration. 
      4. Follow college/unit-specific travel approval steps, if any.
      5. Review the Additional Considerations for International Travel.
