International Travel

International Travel poses extra risks and procedures due to both personal safety concerns and export controls.  Persons wishing to travel internationally on University Business must complete extra tasks to ensure a safe trip.

The Chancellor requires additional layers of approval for foreign travel, as outlined in his Memo (10/10/13) and System Regulation 21.01.03, Disbursement of Funds.

Before International Travel can be approved, it must be approved by the TAMUT Office of Risk Management.  This step insures that the travel is informed of required training and documentation, export control requirements, and additional insurance provided. 

If travel involves countries or areas of extreme risk,  the traveler must complete International Travel Questionnaire for Extreme Risk Countries.  This questionnaire will be forwarded to System Risk Management, which will provide guidance for approval, and the University President must ultimately approve any requests to areas of extreme risk.  

Texas A&M University System provides Medical Evacuation, Return of Remains, and Security Evacuation Coverage for employees traveling internationally on behalf of University business.  This coverage is provided by Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI).  Travelers are responsible for logging into the CISI Portal to obtain the ID Card and other benefit information.
