As of February 15, 2023: Effective for all programs starting after February 15, 2023, Syracuse Abroad will strongly encourage, but not require, all participants to receive the Covid-19 vaccine and/or a recommended booster dose prior to the start of their program. Syracuse Abroad will continue to enforce local Covid-19 vaccine and/or booster mandates where required by law or partner institutions. Similar guidelines will be followed for homestay families. Non-Syracuse University students must still comply with the Covid vaccine requirements of their home school.

All students studying at United States colleges or universities are required to have all their immunizations and vaccinations up to date. There are no immunizations required to travel between the United States, Western Europe, or Santiago. However, travel to other parts of the world may require additional precautions.
