Are there any travel restrictions currently in place for students or employees?
All travel is currently allowed. However, be aware of any restrictions or guidelines in your travel location. It is possible that some governments may put in place travel restrictions, stay-at-home or shelter-in-place orders, mandated quarantines upon arrival, or even state border closures while you are traveling.
All international travel must have a letter of justification approved by the University president before making any travel arrangements.
Email the letter of justification to firstname.lastname@example.org when the Pre-Approval has been submitted in Chrome River. From there, the letter will be routed to the president's office. You will be alerted once the letter is approved and can make travel arrangements.
What should I do if my approved travel needs to be cancelled?
If you have pre-approved travel in Chrome River that is to be canceled — whether it is a voluntary cancellation or one that is associated with the Coronavirus restrictions — please cancel your arrangements (airfare, hotel, registration) immediately. To do that, follow the instructions on the Chrome River Dashboard to process non-refundable expenses, expire your pre-approval, and/or delete your request.
Are international students or faculty able to travel back to their home countries?
There are no restrictions on international faculty or students currently enrolled at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette traveling back to their home countries.
However, federal restrictions may be instituted that deny or delay re-entry into the United States. Research travel restrictions before planning to travel.
