Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences announces travel ban to China

    30 January 2020

    Thursday afternoon the Ministry of Foreign Affairs adjusted the travel advice to China to code red (no travel) for the Wuhan region and code orange (only strictly necessary travel) for the rest of the country.


    This advice was issued because of the considerable increase in the number of Coronavirus infections. As the safety of students and employees is paramount, the Executive Board has decided that travel to China for internships, studies or working visits is no longer permitted for staff and students of this university of applied sciences.

    This restrictive measure is in line with our emergency plan for travelling abroad and is valid for an indefinite period of time.

    Students or staff who would have travelled to China in the near future for study, internship or work will be further informed by their institute, research centre or department.

    For further information about the Coronavirus we refer to the websites of the RIVM and the GGD. We follow the developments around the Coronavirus closely and we will keep you informed.

    We kindly ask for your understanding in this matter, your health is our priority.
