Israel currently has a Travel Restriction risk rating.

  • 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.
