Travel registry – Faculty and staff

Register your own travel

Due to the current travel rules and restrictions and travel waiver process in place, travelers must register their own travel.

How do I register?

  • After clicking on a registry link above, you’ll be asked to login with your NetID.
    • Note: you will see a large ‘UW Study Abroad’ logo – you’re in the right place!
  • Next, you will enter relevant traveler information, including name and NetID as well as destination and dates of travel.
    • Note: you will need to select the destination from the dropdown menu. It will populate with destinations once you start typing.
  • We encourage you to provide the mobile phone number you will be using abroad and emergency contact information.
  • You can also share flight information, detailed itineraries with multiple destination cities, and lodging information.

Next steps

  • Your registration will be processed immediately, and you will receive a confirmation email.
  • We encourage you to also register your travel with the U.S. Embassy / Consulate through the U.S. State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.

What is the registry?

  • The UW International Travel Registry assists the Office of Global Affairs in providing emergency support and resources to UW travelers abroad.
  • It is not an approval process.
  • Registry information is confidential. It is used by the UW Global Travel Security team in case of an emergency, and to provide support when requested.

Who should use the registry?

  • All UW employees traveling outside of the U.S. on official UW travel.
  • All UW graduate assistants, residents and fellows traveling outside of the U.S. on official UW travel.

I am leading a group of students. What do I need to do?

  • If you are leading a group of students on an international program or trip not affiliated with the Bothell, Seattle or Tacoma study abroad offices, visit the UW Student Tours website to register your program and learn more about how UW Study Abroad and the UW Global Travel Security program can assist with administering the health and safety elements of your program.
  • All students traveling overseas through an academic program or receiving funds/sponsorship from UW must purchase the UW Student Abroad Insurance, register international travel, and request a waiver for travel to high-risk destinations.
