Leiden University currently approves study related acitvities abroad under certain conditions only.
Countries classified green or yellow, are approved. You do not need to follow any additional procedure.
You can only go to a country with color code orange:
- if the country is your home country and you are already there, or if it is your home country and you can enter without entry restrictions.
- if you are a citizen of a country that is welcome in the host country without entry restrictions.
In these cases, first ask for permission from the International Incident Team (IIT). You are NOT allowed to leave without this permission.
