UC Davis has enacted a new policy on international travel, laying out the campus’s registration requirement for trips abroad and setting rules for “high-risk” travel.
The policy aims to promote the safety and security of UC Davis travelers abroad and ensure that appropriate risk mitigation procedures are applied to “high-risk” travel.
AT A GLANCE
The policy has two major components:
- All international travel on university business must be registered.
- “High-risk” travel is subject to review.
The campus’s travel security manager cited some of the benefits of trip registration: Travelers receive customized, location-specific alerts to mitigate weather, health, security and transportation disruptions; access to important travel insurance and emergency contact information; and timely responses — to include emergency evacuation — in the event of medical or security-related incidents.
Trip registration is automatic for travel arrangements made through AggieTravel (Connexxus). For reservations made outside of AggieTravel (Connexxus), travelers must register through UC Away “It’s a simple process that takes one minute or less,” the travel secuyrity manager said.
Important note: Beginning July 1, UC Davis travelers will be required to certify via the reimbursement process that their international travel was registered prior to departure.
More details, including an updated list of “high-risk” destinations and procedures for submitting proposed travel itineraries to such destinations, can be found on Global Affairs’ “International Travel Policy” webpage.
