International Travel Policies and Procedures

All MSU-sponsored travelers must register their travel in the Global Travel Registry and, as applicable, submit a Request in Concur.

Travel to elevated or extreme risk destinations is subject to additional review by Global Safety.

  • Global Safety may prompt the traveler to complete an online travel waiver as needed and refer the waiver to FASTR or RSAC for further review.
  • Travel requests, particularly those to extreme-risk destinations, must be submitted three weeks before the departure date.

Travel to the U.S. from an international location does not require Global Safety approval.


MSU International Travel Health Insurance

MSU-sponsored travelers are eligible for MSU-provided international travel health insurance and automatically enrolled with registration in the Global Travel Registry.
