Traveling on University Business?
Any member of the University community that takes part in domestic travel on behalf of the University can be involved in any range of activity from individual conference travel to group field work and anything in between.
All travel will involve some risk and anyone traveling as an individual or in a group should ensure that they take all precautions and plan their travel in a way that will ensure that the proper insurance is in place and risks are taken into account.
To assist in planning your off campus travel, please review the Travel Checklist.
When traveling internationally there are many factors to consider to ensure that you have a safe and successful trip. Some of these factors include, but are not limited to:
- current political conditions of the country
- the environmental conditions (i.e. weather)
- the crime rate in the area
- health conditions including common diseases or parasites
You should reference the Government of Canada's Travel Website to obtain up-to-date risk level for the country you will be traveling to. In the event that the risk level is "Exercise a high degree of caution," or higher you must contact Risk and Insurance Services prior to departure as coverage may not apply.
For more information regarding international travel, including orientation for the particular country you are traveling to please contact the International Centre.
When traveling anywhere off campus on behalf of Memorial University please review the General Travel Checklist.
