Student Restricted Regions Requests

In addition to registration and insurance requirements of the UT Student Travel Policy to International Locations, all students proposing travel to any location on the Restricted Regions List must have approval from the International Oversight Committee (IOC).

All students proposing travel to Restricted Regions must submit travel requests to the IOC. 

All student requests must be signed by your department chair if you are required to complete a Request for Travel Authorization (RTA). The chair may delegate this responsibility to another individual in the same office, but whoever assumes this authority must complete IOC training.

All request forms must be typed, with the exception of the signature line. If a request is not typed, the IOC may not review.

Request Process

Complete all of the following components of the request package and submit to grs@austin.utexas.edu:

The IOC retains the right to withdraw one's travel authorization, withhold reimbursement and/or take other disciplinary actions if necessary for noncompliance with the UT Travel Policy.
