I’d like to travel internationally for a vacation. What are the rules for my return to campus?

Stanford recommends deferring international travel, even if you are vaccinated.

If you plan to travel internationally, be alert to possible changes in countries’ travel restrictions (including testing on arrival and quarantine), as well as the new requirement to obtain a negative test within 24 hours before returning to the United States. Also, non-U.S. citizens who are not fully vaccinated are encouraged not to travel outside the U.S., as returning may be problematic under CDC guidelines. Consult CDC information here and here.

Individuals returning or coming to campus following travel must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Fully vaccinated, returning from domestic travel (outside of California): No period of restricted activity.
  • Not fully vaccinated, returning from domestic or international travel: Restrict activities (i.e., not come to shared spaces) until receiving a negative Day 5 test result.
  • Fully vaccinated, returning from international travel: Restrict activities (i.e., not come to shared spaces) until receiving a negative Day 0 test result. After receiving a negative Day 0 test result but before receiving a negative Day 5 test result, resume in-person activities but refrain from indoor public dining and continue wearing face coverings indoors and in crowded spaces.

In addition, visitors and guests coming to campus must also complete a daily Health Attestation form.
