Visiting International Delegations

UC Berkeley welcomes delegations from international partners, peer universities and government agencies.

Temporary Delegation Visit Policy Amid COVID-19 

Given the rapidly evolving and uncertain situation regarding COVID-19, current travel restrictions, and the safety and well-being of the Berkeley campus community, all visiting international delegations are currently suspended.

While the Berkeley campus remains a public place and in operation, visitors will not be able to meet with senior administrators, even if a delegation visit request has been submitted.

GEO is closely monitoring the situation and will provide further guidance concerning fall delegation visits at a later time.

The Global Engagement Office (GEO) accommodates delegation visits when:

  • Visitors have requested to meet with senior administrators, including the Chancellor, Vice Chancellors, or Vice Provosts.
  • Meetings requested involve multiple units on campus and topics of interest extend beyond one academic unit or department.

Visit requests with a specific, singular scholarly interest should be arranged within the relevant Berkeley department, school, or college.

GEO requires at least 6 weeks notice and the completion of the Delegation Visit Request form in order to accommodate a delegation visit request.
