What is a “high risk destination?”

The university's Policy on International Travel uses three indicators to determine if a country, city, or region presents a "high risk" to travelers.

  1. Countries with current U.S. Department of State Travel Warnings.
  2. Countries and cities designated with a risk rating of "High" (Level Four) or "Very High" (Level Five) by WorldAware, the university's international response provider.
  3. Areas or regions under a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Travel Notice Warning Level 3.

Visit this webpage for a list of high-risk destination. The University reserves the right as its sole discretion to designate other locations as “high-risk.”

Please contact your program or NUPD's International Security Office to learn more about the university's requirements for sponsored travel to high risk destinations.
