Graduate Student International Travel Policy

All graduate students traveling abroad for university-related activities must comply with this UNH Graduate Student International Travel Policy. The process outlined below is for graduate students traveling abroad for research, conferences, and practicums.

Important points to consider:

  • The following process should be completed a minimum of 30 days prior to departure.
  • It is a multi-step process that could take up to a week to complete.
  • Graduate students must adhere to the UNH International Travel Risk Policy prohibiting student travel in countries with U.S. State Department Travel Advisories of Level 3 and 4, unless a petition is approved by the UNH International Travel Risk Committee.
  • Completing this process enrolls students in the International SOS Travel Assistance and Insurance program and facilitates communication and support in the event of an emergency abroad.
