International Travel Policies and Procedures

The MAU approval form and COVID-19 international waiver request form are no longer required for any MSU-sponsored travel - including faculty, staff, student or sponsored guest travel.

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 as well as refer the waiver to FASTR or RSAC for further review.
  • Travel requests, in particular those to extreme risk destinations, must be submitted three weeks in advance of 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.
