International Travel Registration and Insurance

Employees traveling to international destinations should review the Center for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC) website for important health information by destination and the Department of State’s (DOS) website for important security information by destination. There are a variety of risks involved when traveling internationally.  The best way to avoid risks is to plan ahead and be prepared for emergencies that may arise.  It is strongly recommended employees review the International Travel Safety Tips and Check List prior to travel.
