Approval Requirements

 All international travel by University employees and students on official university business must be approved in advance. The authorization for travel must be submitted and processed through a Concur Travel Request at least 30 days prior to the travel start date.  A Concur Travel Request obtains the appropriate approvals for international travel (assuming the department head is on the routing path, International Travel must be approved by the department head and cannot be delegated any further), including approvals required for countries with Travel Warnings and the employee's Acknowledgement of Risk.

Expense reports for international travel will be made in compliance with TAMU System Rule 21.01.03 and funded with local funds only.

An International Travel Checklist, detailing all the steps for a smooth trip abroad, can be found here. Resources are linked throughout the International Travel Checklist and in this page, as well.
