  • Per CDC, state and county guidance, travel is allowed for fully vaccinated individuals.
  • To ensure travel reimbursement for domestic and international trips, Stanford travelers must be fully vaccinated and have uploaded proof of COVID vaccination prior to departure.
    • Faculty, staff and postdocs should upload vaccination status to Health Check.
    • Graduate students should upload vaccination documentation to the VadenPatient portal and submit their vaccination status into Health Check.
  • Fully vaccinated travelers will no longer need prior approval for domestic or international travel, subject to these restrictions:
    • Travelers at schools or programs with more restrictive policies will be required to follow the more restrictive policies. 
    • Field research that involves clinical or non-clinical human subjects requires prior approval until further notice.
  • Vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers should follow CDCstate, county, airline and country-specific guidance on testing prior to and following travel.
    • Currently, the CDC recommends that vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers test 3-5 days after completing international travel. We recommend the same for those returning from international travel.
