International Travel Guidelines

All UC Davis-affiliated travelers are strongly encouraged to register their international 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 and that a UC Davis account is required to register travel.
