Traveling on a university-related trip?

If you are a student or staff member traveling on a university-related trip, you are required to register your trip with the Tufts Travel Registry per university's travel safety policy.Faculty members are strongly recommended to register.

The Tufts Travel Registry is a confidential and secure database for maintaining travel information for all Tufts affiliates conducting university-related international travel. The Travel Registry is the official and authoritative source of traveler information that forms the basis for the university’s emergency response protocols and communications strategy (e.g., alerts, warnings, evacuation notices) when responding to an emergency or critical incident abroad. Registering will also give you access to free travel medical coverage.

If you are student or traveling with students, please note that any country or region that has been designated as high-risk by the US Department of State is subject to university review and approval.
