International Travel Safety Policy
The University of Montana is dedicated to maximum safety and security for all UM students, faculty, and staff while abroad. To achieve this goal, a new process has been developed by International Programs and Environmental Health and Risk Management to record all UM international travel. In this process, all UM faculty, staff, and students are required to register their international travel online through a system administered by the Office of International Programs. This will allow UM to provide assistance and vital information to traveler as quickly as possible. To find out what constitutes "UM-related travel" and to register your travel, visit International Travel Registration.
As part of the international travel registration, the International Travel Review Committee will consider UM-related travel to countries with U.S. Department of State Travel Warnings. This committee will consist of representatives from the Offices of International Programs and Environmental Health and Risk Management in consultation with the office of Legal Counsel. This committee shall determine what steps are necessary to address risks associated with travel to countries under a Travel Warning and, in some cases, limit or preclude travel. If the committee determines that travel will be permitted, and there is a travel warning for that country, the traveler will be required to sign an acknowledgement of risk form.
All international travelers should register themselves and any applicable program participants in the U.S. Department of State Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.
