What is the registry?

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

Registry information is confidential. It is used by the UW Global Emergency Manager 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.

Who should use it?

  • All UW students, graduate and undergraduate, not enrolled through International Programs & Exchanges while outside the U.S.
  • All UW graduate assistants, residents and fellows traveling outside of the U.S.
  • All UW employees traveling outside of the U.S.
  • If your department, school, or college used Christopherson Business Travel to arrange your trip, you don’t need to use this registry. (Applicable departments include IHME and the School of Medicine.)
