Start the International Travel Process

The University of Texas at Austin is committed to making study, research, and other academic pursuits abroad both accessible and safe for faculty and students. As such, we maintain governing policies for official university international travel.

How to Start

Check whether the country you are traveling to is on UT’s Restricted Regions list. If so, apply for and obtain approval from the International Oversight Committee (IOC).

If you are not traveling to a UT Restricted Region and you have not already registered your travel in MyAbroad Portal, register your travel.

Register your travel details and sign up for notifications in the U.S. Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). Additionally, log in to the International SOS web page and sign up for email alerts.

Review our Health & Safety Resources to help you prepare for your trip.
