Please find resources and tips below to help you prepare for your university-related international travel.

1) Before you commit to your travel plans (purchase a ticket, set meetings, etc.):

  1. If applicable, submit your travel authorization to the Controller’s Office
  2. Review the U.S. Department of State Travel Advisory and OSAC Country Security Report for your destination.
  3. Review the CDC vaccination and immunization recommendations for your destination and schedule an appointment with the USC Travel Clinic if needed.
  4. Consider other aspects of your physical and mental health and make a plan to promote your wellness while abroad.

2) At least four weeks prior to departure:

  1. Enroll in the university’s international emergency health insurance plan. (Note: Unless you are traveling with an education abroad program, follow the instructions for travel not connected to education abroad programming.)
  2. Review the recommendations for maintaining your data security while traveling internationally.
  3. Enroll in the U.S. Department of State Smart Travel Enrollment Program.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
