Trip Registration/Travel Insurance

All UC Davis-affiliated travelers are required to register their international and out-of-state trips. Trip registration takes less than one minute and provides travelers with critical, up-to-the-minute health, safety, security, and weather updates, giving travelers the information and support they need to ensure a safe and productive trip abroad. In addition to real-time, location-specific alerts, registering a trip is essential to ensuring timely emergency assistance, insurance support, and evacuation in the event of a crisis. Please note that travel booked via AggieTravel does not require a separate trip registration. A UC Davis account is required to register travel.

Export Control

International travel and international shipments may trigger advanced licensing requirements under federal export control laws. It is especially important to be aware of these requirements if UC Davis personnel plan to hand-carry or send items or equipment to an embargoed country (such as Iran, Cuba, Syria, Sudan, or North Korea), given that such activities are highly regulated. University personnel are urged to contact UC Davis’ Office of Research at orrci@ad3.ucdavis.edu or (530) 754-0642 well prior to ANY international travel or shipments for a determination on any export licensing requirements.
