The International Travel Policy establishes Temple's requirements for University Affiliated International Travel so that travelers can be connected with expertise and guidance on best practices, maximize safety and ensure compliance with applicable regulations.
The policy applies to all University employees, faculty, students, authorized volunteers and guests of the University who are traveling as part of any University Affiliated International Travel, regardless of funding source.
Any travel by Members and Affiliates of the University Community to an international destination which is for educational, research, or business purposes and which is related to the traveler's affiliation with the University. Personal travel, such as vacation, is not considered University Affiliated International Travel. International travel to or from global Temple campuses, such as Temple Rome and Temple University Japan, is also considered University Affiliated International Travel. This includes travel by groups affiliated with the University, such as organizations, clubs, and teams. This also includes travel to professional conferences/meetings related to the traveler's affiliation with the University, regardless of the funding source, including where the University travelers' costs are paid for by an outside organization.
It depends on the type of travel you are embarking on and your affiliation to the University. We recommend reviewing our flow chart to determine if you have to comply and then follow the guidance throughout this website on how to comply.
Faculty and/or staff that are traveling as part of University Affiliated International Travel can register in one of two ways:
Faculty and staff that are traveling internationally with students must first obtain approval to travel before they can register.
Students traveling as part of University Affiliated International Travel must first request approval and then register. Requests for approval can be sbumitted as an individual or as part of an organized Temple affiliated group.
No. The International Travel Policy does not apply to personal travel.
