All students, staff and faculty planning international travel should take the initiative to learn about their host country and take reasonable precautions to ensure they stay healthy and safe. This includes visiting a travel clinic or consulting with your own doctor about any preventative measures you can take.
Western encourages all travellers with Canadian citizenship to register with the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) while abroad.
International students and others holding international passports should check with individual consular services in their home country.
Students participating in international learning experiences can receive more detailed travel health and safety advice during pre-departure orientation sessions. For more information, visit our International Learning website
