Letter of Permission: Additional Institution List

As a publicly-funded institution, the University of Toronto refers to The Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) to assess the risks associated with a particular country. These DFATD country advisories put a country or region into one of four categories:

1) Exercise normal security precautions.

2) Exercise a high degree of caution.

3) Avoid non-essential travel.

4) Avoid all travel.

The Safety Abroad Guidelines permit all students to go to level 1 and 2 countries. However, travel to countries that fall into levels 3 or 4 is restricted to graduate students and, even in these situations, a student must make a strong case to be granted permission to travel to higher risk destinations under the auspices of the University. Advisories are updated daily and available on the DFATD website.
