Faculty & Staff

Faculty and staff traveling overseas without students for university-related or sponsored purposes should complete the following items before departure:  

  1. Register your travel with MyTrips (the online Georgetown Travel Registration system with International SOS) before departure. Travel registration enables the University to proactively contact travelers and provide support in the event of an emergency. 
  2. Confirm that you have health insurance coverage for international travel.
  3. (Highly recommended for U.S. citizens) Register with the U.S. State Department Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).

Faculty and staff should follow any established departmental or school processes and contact their unit’s Senior Business Manager with questions about funding or reimbursement.

Faculty and staff traveling abroad with students for Georgetown University purposes should follow the authorization process for Groups.

COVID-19 continues to impact international travel.  It is important for GU travelers to stay up to date on and comply with all travel requirements and restrictions in place both at their destination and upon their return, with the understanding that these regulations may change without advanced notice.  Refer to our COVID-19 Considerations page for guidance when planning your travel.
