Athlete Travel

Dear National Federation,

Dear Team Manager,


The Local Organisers of the UCI Cyclo-cross Word Cup of Waterloo, Fayetteville Arkansas and Iowa City, Flanders Classics and the UCI are currently working to provide information on obtaining approval to enter the USA for the 3 first rounds of the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup.

Due to current COVID-19 travel restrictions on the US territory, each traveler needs to obtain a National Interest Exemption (NIE) approval, which we are reviewing the process in detail with USA Cycling and United States Olympic Committee to allow for a one-time submission of all athletes, coaches, staff etc.

Please note that the traditional invitation letters submitted to US embassies will not be granted by the NIE approval. The NIE form is handled by US Customs and Border Protection. The UCI will send by e-mail to UCI Teams and National Federations the relevant information to submit the necessary data to the adequate designatory, as soon as we will have identified the most efficient process.

Local Organisers, USA Cycling, Flanders Classics and the UCI are all committed to make easy the participation of Cyclo-cross riders and teams to the opening three rounds of the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup.
