Guidance on Rutgers-approved Domestic and International Travel

Who should follow this guidance?

In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, and other health, safety, or security concerns, mission-critical travel by members of the Rutgers community may be necessary. To reduce the risk that faculty, staff, students, post-doctoral fellows, and administrators being exposed to these contingencies during domestic and international travel, we have developed guidelines and processes to help us consider critical travel fairly on a universitywide level, and to help protect the health and safety of us all.

Note that as of April 6, 2022, Rutgers has deployed a new, streamlined travel program. Details are available on the University Procurement Services Travel and Expense website.

Forms for Study Abroad Programs

The Form SA-1 petition process is being retired in 2024. If you are planning to travel with students or travel to a high-risk destination, please reach out to Rutgers Global Travel Safety and Security at for assistance or questions about the new process.
