Know Before You Go

Local rules, restrictions and guidelines are expected to change rapidly as the COVID-19 situation evolves. IEEE's recommendation with respect to travel is to gather the information you need including referring to your country's consulate or state department for the most up to date information related to travel to your destination, and any countries where you may have layovers as part of your scheduled travel.


In some locations including airports, masks must be worn at all times, whilst at others it is only recommended. Please ensure you are familiar with the face coverings guidance at your destination and/or transit airports. If in doubt, bring a mask with you to ensure your comfort and compliance.
