International Travel

This is a reminder that the University has a number of requirements for students traveling abroad for academic or University-related purposes. The two key requirements are:

Travel Approval: If you are traveling to countries on the U.S. Department of State's travel warning list, obtain approval from the University's International Travel Risk Assessment and Advisory Committee (ITRAAC) before departure. NOTE: Applicants are encouraged to apply early as the committee review process commonly takes 6 to 8 weeks. The committee will not consider applications completed less than 2 weeks prior to planned departure.

Register Travel: Register your travelthrough the InternationalTravel Registry for Students, which will facilitate completion of the following requirements:
o Obtain University-approved, mandatory international travel, health, and security insurance (cost is $31.00/month)
o Complete a release and waiver
o Provide 24-7 emergency contacts
o Complete online health and safety orientation

It is important to note that the University policy applies to all students on any University-related program abroad (including student organization travel), or any overseas program connected to their studies at UMN, even if coordinated or funded through another organization. This includes, but is not limited to: internships, field experiences, coursework, capstones, conferences, and research. Not sure if your travel qualifies as University travel? Kaoru Nunn at nunnx016@umn.edu.
You can find an overview of these requirements, funding resources and travel resources at http://global.umn.edu/students/index.html.Safe travels!
