Tufts Travel Registry
The Tufts Travel Registry is a confidential and secure database for maintaining key 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. University-related travel includes travel that is led by university faculty and staff; promoted by faculty, staff and units; funded by the university; or where credit or degree requirements are fulfilled.
All students and staff members are required to register their university-related travel. Faculty members are strongly encouraged to register their university-related travel.
Please note: On January 27, 2017, the United States government issued an Executive Order restricting travel for persons from the following seven countries: Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. If you are a visa or green card holder from one of the seven countries, or if you are planning to travel to one of these countries, please contact Diana Chigas, Senior International Officer and Associate Provost for additional information and immigration support services. Professor Chigas can be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
