International Travel Policy Request Exception for Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff conducting international travel to a CDC or US Department of State *Level 4* destination must receive an approved travel policy exception. All exception requests must be submitted at least 10 business days before departure.

This request is open to faculty and staff.

Each request is carefully reviewed and considered, and not all requests are approved. Once your petition has been received, we will ensure that it is complete and reviewed by the International Risk Management Committee. The committee reserves the right to request additional information from an applicant. You can direct questions to itr@utk.edu. Travel should not commence until the petition has been reviewed and approved.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Provost and the Center for Global Engagement reserve the right to revoke approval of requests at any time. The changing nature of events abroad and revisions in the US Department of States or CDC Advisories/Warnings/Alerts may require additional reviews before and during travel.
