TRAVEL ALERT: Until travel bans are released and the US Consulates return to normal operations, ISS strongly discourages travel due to the changing nature of U.S. immigration policy and the COVID-19 pandemic. All international faculty, students and staff should inform us of any international travel so we can advise on possible implications to study and employment.
