Countries and regions deemed elevated risk are distinguished by low level conflict—including frequent terrorist attacks, high internal tensions (tribal or political), violence that often impacts civilians and other noncombatants, violence that may be state sponsored, a rule of law that is ineffective with weak emergency services, and/or an appreciable risk of violent crime perpetrated on foreigners. Countries may be placed on this list during periods of uncertainty or volatility.

About the Harvard GSS Risk Ratings

Our International Safety & Security team maintains the risk ratings list for Harvard travelers. The Harvard GSS risk ratings are based on guidance from several sources, including the U.S. State Department and other foreign ministries, our worldwide security consultants, and regional experts among Harvard’s faculty and staff.

Whereas the U.S. State Department and similar foreign affairs organizations base their ratings off their own citizens' business and tourist travel, Harvard’s ratings take into account the unique and diverse work and backgrounds of our students, faculty, staff, and other academics. The University's student travel policies also correlate with the Harvard GSS risk ratings.

COVID-19 and Our Risk Ratings

Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the University’s policy for Harvard-related international travel, we are not factoring COVID-19 into the Harvard GSS travel risk ratings at this time. The scope of the pandemic's impact affects nearly every country. See our coronavirus travel advice for more information.

Changes to Country and Region Risk Ratings

We review and update the ratings twice annually ahead of summer and fall travel and again before winter and spring break travel. We also actively monitor global developments and adjust the ratings as circumstances arise. Although infrequent, risk ratings may change prior to your departure or while you’re in country. You’ll need to be prepared for adverse events and prepared to modify your departure, destination, or return. Countries that are not rated may still present serious risks. Hazards such as inadequate medical facilities, ongoing violent demonstrations, and tropical diseases do not necessarily result in a country or region being adding to our risk ratings list.
