Faculty and staff traveling overseas without students for university-related or sponsored purposes should complete the following items before departure:
- Register your travel with MyTrips (the online Georgetown Travel Registration system) before departure*. Travel registration enables the University to proactively contact travelers and provide support in the event of an emergency.
- Confirm coverage for international travel with your primary health insurance provider. If needed, purchase supplemental health insurance for the period of time you will be overseas. You can find a list of international health insurance providers here.
- (Highly recommended for U.S. citizens) Register with the U.S. State Department Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
*Reservations confirmed and ticketed through one of the university-affiliated travel agencies, such as Georgetown Travel Online or Anthony Travel, are automatically registered. Travel can also be registered manually by entering your travel itinerary into the MyTrips tool. MyTrips is a secure travel registry where you can register your itinerary and emergency contact information. First-time users should establish a username and password and answer some short profile questions. (Read our step-by-step instructions). Once registered, you will receive a travel advisory via email with useful information about the countries where you are traveling. In case of an emergency, your itinerary allows International SOS and Georgetown to determine your location and provide assistance. Travel registration must be completed before departure.
Faculty and staff traveling abroad with students for Georgetown University purposes should follow instructions for Group Leaders.
