New Policy Requires Registration of International Travel

By Dateline Staff on June 5, 2018 in University News

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.

    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.
