International Travel Gateway

In order for NC State to provide support to students engaged in university-affiliated international travel, all students engaging in university-affiliated international travel must register with the Study Abroad Office (Reg 02.55.01).

All students engaged in non-credit-bearing, university-affiliated international travel must submit their itinerary to the International Travel Gateway
  • The following situations are exempt and should not be submitted through the Gateway:
    • Students participating in study abroad or ASB programs are registered through their study abroad application, not the Gateway.
    • Students traveling for personal reasons (for example, summer or spring break vacation) should not submit a record in the Gateway.
    • The International Travel Gateway is only for student travel, thus faculty and staff should not log their travel. 
  • In accordance with the Restricted Travel Policy, all students traveling to countries with advisory levels of 3 or 4 with the CDC or U.S. State Department will be required to petition for travel, following the instructions within the International Travel Gateway.
    • COVID-19: as of August 2022, a petition is no longer required for NC State student travel to locations where the advisory or warning level is limited solely due to COVID-19 concerns. The CDC recommends that individuals do not travel internationally until fully vaccinated and boosted. Visiting locations where there are fewer cases of COVID-19 may be less risky for getting COVID-19 than visiting locations where there are more cases of COVID-19, though transmission rates can change at any point in time. Travelers should learn which travel activities are lower risk to protect themselves and others. Students should also cautiously assess the situation based on their personal comfort level and risk tolerance. See NC State COVID-19 Campus Health. If new circumstances warrant, a petition could be required again in the future to restricted travel areas due to COVID-19.
    • Entries that require a petition for approval should be submitted 4-6 weeks prior to departure. 

Students traveling with a group must each register individually. If the organization wishes to pay for the insurance on behalf of the entire group, please contact Seth Parrish or Lowell West
