Travel Safety and Emergency Planning for Employees Abroad

Cornell provides a secure registry system for faculty, staff, and students to record Cornell-related international travel plans and contact information. Registration of Cornell-related international travel is mandatory for all students, staff, and faculty.

This registry helps the university to respond and assist in the event of individual or group emergencies. All students, staff, and faculty must register. Any student and faculty/staff traveling with students to a destination designated as elevated-risk will require pre-approval of their travel by Cornell’s International Travel Advisory and Response Team (ITART). Failure to gain approval will result in Cornell funds being withdrawn from this activity.

Note: Disclosure of foreign travel may be required by funding or oversight agencies. All travel records must be maintained for a minimum of five years from the date of travel.
