TRAVEL ALERT: Berkeley International Office (BIO) currently does not recommend travel due to the changing nature of U.S. immigration policy and the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak and its impacts to global travel. For important information regarding current U.S. immigration policy, Executive Orders, and travel advisories, please see BIO's Immigration Policy Updates & FAQ webpage and Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates & FAQ page.
COVID-19 UPDATES: BIO is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and Presidential Proclamations suspending entry into the United States for those deemed to pose a risk of transmitting COVID-19, specifically travelers entering from Brazil, the United Kingdom and Ireland, the European Schengen Area, Iran, and China within the last 14 days. The Department of State has announced a possible change in the Schengen, UK, and Ireland Travel Ban. Please see our FAQ for more info. The Department of State has also announced a phased resumption of routine visa services. Please refer to their FAQ for the latest information and visit your local U.S. embassy or consulate website to confirm operating status and find information about appointment rescheduling and/or emergency services. Mail delivery in many parts of the world is also impacted and may result in delays in the delivery of immigration documents. Be aware that travelers returning from CDC Risk Level 3 countries are required to follow UC Berkeley campus guidance following travel and re-entry. More information is available on the UC Berkeley COVID-19 campus website. Should you have urgent, emergency travel needs to or from impacted regions, please contact BIO for advising.
