This section will display if “Reimbursed or sponsored travel” was selected in the Entity Nature of Interest section.

Within this section, you can add new travel and copy or delete current travel entries.

Note: Travel entries that are more than one year old or more than a year in the future are not considered part of the SFI being disclosed. Therefore, older travel entries will not display as part of the SFI entity. You will also not be able to add new travel that is more than a year in the future.
