What is the International Travel Policy?

Georgetown University recognizes and supports the significant international expertise of its faculty and the interest and engagement of its students, faculty and staff in global activities.  In September 2012, Georgetown University implemented an international travel policy for all faculty, staff, and students participating in international travel supported by or related to the university.

If your travel is:

  • Funded in part or in full by University funds, or
  • Credit awarded, or
  • Organized by a University group, or
  • Representing Georgetown on site, or
  • Fundraising on campus for the trip, or
  • Affiliated in any way with a campus organization

…then Georgetown’s International Travel Policy is applicable and university travelers must follow the University’s guidelines for travel.

The GU International Travel Policy does not apply to students, faculty, and staff traveling internationally for personal reasons or on non-university-sponsored trips.  If you are an international student or scholar and would like further information about your immigration requirements for travel outside of the United States and reentry to the U.S., please contact your IS Advisor.
