International Travel Registry

The University of Washington’s International Travel Registry assists UW students, faculty and staff  in preparation for and during international travel. It is is not an approval process.

The information provided in the registry is confidential, and will be used by the UW Global Emergency Manager and/or designees in case of an emergency, or if the destination is under a U.S. State Department travel warning or under restricted travel by the UW International Risk, Assessment and Safety Committee. The travel registry is hosted by OnCall International, UW’s employee international travel assistance provider.
