Worldwide Travel Advisory Lifted - Passport Update #7

Since March 31, the US Department of State had posted a worldwide level 4 (do not travel) travel advisory. After 128 days, that blanket travel advisory has been lifted. Simultaneously, the CDC has lightened its travel notice levels for much of the world. But, with COVID-19 levels in the USA, some countries may be less enthusiastic to receive US residents.

Celebrate 50 Years of Pride by Exploring Programs Abroad

On the first anniversary of the Stonewall riots, on Sunday, June 28, 1970, organizers planned Christopher Street Liberation Day with the first gay pride march. Over 50 years, we have seen waves of greater tolerance, not only in New York and across the USA, but also in many countries abroad. New laws over the last 20 years have made Europe the most LGBTQ-friendly region and a welcoming group of countries for study abroad students.

Not every country has seen the shifts in attitude we've witnessed in Norway and Ireland and the Netherlands, but far-flung countries like Argentina, New Zealand, and even Mexico City have become more friendly destinations for our students in recent years.
