Note: Under current WFU policy due to Covid, all WFU-sponsored international travel requires pre-authorization. When preparing your Richter application, consider carefully the safety of your destination. Consult the list of countries for which the US State Department has issued travel advisories. If your country is on this list, you must petition the Overseas Crisis Management Team (OCMT) to travel to this country, and you might want to have a backup plan!

The OCMT is responsible for reviewing and approving all University-sponsored international travel to areas considered “High Risk”. This includes travel to locations where: (a) the U.S. State Department has issued a Travel Advisory Level 4 or Level 3 ; (b) the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Warning Level 3 health notice; or (c) the OCMT and/or University has deemed significant health, safety, or security risks are present.
