Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff on MSU sponsored international travel must register their travel with MSU.


Faculty and staff are encouraged to contact us for safety and security recommendations in advance of their international travel, especially if traveling to a high-risk destination. Note that if you are traveling to a high-risk destination with an undergraduate or graduate student, a Travel Waiver request must be approved before the student may travel. More information may be found on the student registration page.

If your international travel is MSU sponsored you must:

  1. Complete a Pre-Trip Authorization Form
    These forms should be signed by the appropriate Major Administrative Unit (MAU) authority.

  2. Register in the MSU Global Travel Registry
    You may register your own travel or have someone else (such as a departmental travel arranger or trip leader) register travel on your behalf. This step is required to activate your international health insurance coverage.
