International Travel During COVID-19

Faculty and staff are encouraged to limit international travel as much as possible. Any work-related international travel should be reviewed and approved by your division head. As always, approved travel must be entered ahead of time in the University Travel Registry. University employees seeking to travel to a country with a Level 3 or 4 travel advisory may not do so without the written approval of the Provost. Contact the Office of Global Strategies for further information.

Registration is required for all Catholic University faculty, staff, and accompanying dependents whenever traveling abroad for university-related activities.

The Travel Registry is a confidential database used to maintain key information for faculty, staff and accompanying dependents traveling to international destinations. The Registry is the official and authoritative source of traveler information that forms the basis for the University's emergency response protocols and communications strategy when responding to an emergency or critical incident abroad. Information from the Travel Registry will be used to enroll Catholic University's travelers in the University's international insurance automatically.

Individual students should register using the website if participating in a university program abroad, whether academic or co-curricular. They should register using the Travel Registry if accompanying a faculty member on an individual trip abroad for research, a conference, or other university-related reason.
