The Basics of the Travel Registry
Do faculty and staff need to register their international travel?
No, the travel registry is for students only with one exception: staff or faculty must register if they are leading a group of students abroad. In this case, only one staff or faculty member needs to register. Read the faculty / staff checklist for detailed instructions.
If I am an international student returning to my home country for research or other purposes, do I need to register my travel?
As an undergraduate student, do I need to register my international travel?
Am I required complete the travel registry if I’m traveling domestically?
No, the Travel Registry is for international travel only. Student traveling within the US should not enroll in the travel registry.
International Health Insurance
Am I required to enroll in GeoBlue if I am a citizen of my destination?
No, if all of the following apply:
- you are a dual citizen or regular citizen of the destination country;
- you are a permanent resident of the destination country; and
- you are enrolled in a health care plan in that country.
Usually, most dual citizen students are permanent residents of the U.S. We ask students, “If you got really sick or injured and you couldn’t continue with the program, where would you want to recover?” The answer is usually “home,” which often means here in the United States. The GeoBlue plan covers the costs of medical evacuation to your home when it is in the United States.
