COVID-19 & Travel

Work-Related International Travel

For work-related international travel, make sure to frequently check the Mount Sinai Travel Policy for updated guidelines.

The Office of Global Operations is available to provide bespoke Travel Risk Assessments per trip, including COVID-19 related information and an evaluation of security risks (e.g. civil unrest, political instability). If you wish to obtain these services, below is our current process for assisting Department Chairs, Institute Directors and travelers with work-related international travel:

  • Traveler submits the Office of Global Operations’ High Risk Travel Questionnaire with trip information.
  • The Office of Global Operations creates a Travel Risk Assessment and sends it to the Traveler and Department Chair/Institute Director. This Travel Risk Assessment will also include required pre-travel action items, e.g. International SOS registration.
  • If the trip is approved, the Department Chair/Institute Director will write a Letter of Support documenting approval.

Please contact the Office of Global Operations if you have any questions.

Personal Travel

If you plan to engage in personal travel, we encourage you to review the Office of Global Operations' COVID-19 Travel Considerations for a list of common travel risks, safety tips, and resources.
