International Travel Resources
The University strongly encourages all members of the UMB community who are contemplating travel abroad for research, educational or other purposes to plan well in advance and to take precautions to ensure a safe and trip.
Tips and reminders for your trip abroad.
Registration and approval:
All UM travelers – faculty, postdocs, students, staff – are to register their international travel plans, including emergency contact information, using the UM International Travel Registry. We can't assist when a crisis happens abroad if we don't know that you're there. The Travel Registry is used for travel on UM business, whether or not travel will be reimbursed by UM.
Booking and logistics:
Travel plans should be made reasonably in advance of travel.
- Air and rail travel other than coach/economy class will be reimbursed only in rare cases as described in the Travel Policy (PDF).
- Determine in advance with your travel approver whether standard per diem rates or U.S. Department of State foreign M&IE (meal and incidental expenses) rates will be applied.
- Travel under Federal Grants and Contracts - International flights should be booked on U.S. flag air carriers. Read more
- Review the Travel Policy (PDF) regarding reimbursement and UM requirements.

Ensure that your passport is valid to at least six months after your return to the U.S. U.S. Department of State passport information
Visa and Immunization Requirements:
Check the visa and immunization requirements for each country you are visiting.
- UMB travel agencies offer visa and passport processing services. Foreign consulates and embassies based in the U.S. often grant visas to people who live within a specific U.S. region. If you choose this option, it is highly recommended that you visit the foreign embassy or consulate’s website within the jurisdiction of your permanent residence. Visa requirements may vary, so to be sure you have the correct paperwork, and follow the instructions of that particular embassy or consulate. Here is a list of international consulates and embassies in the United States.
- International faculty, staff and students: Check with the Office of International Services before traveling outside the United States.
