Travel Alerts

We take the safety of our students, faculty and staff very seriously. Before you travel or consider traveling, it is your responsibility to review and understand the potential risks involved. Please review W&M's policies about travel to restricted countries and countries under warnings and alerts. (Links to the right)

Below is a list of countries in alphabetical order. When you click on a country name, a drop-down menu will appear showing links to any alerts or warnings from the U.S. State Department and/or Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We try to keep this information as up-to-date as possible, but for the most current information and health advice, visit the U.S. State Department and Centers for Disease Control websites.
