If planning travel to any Level 3 or 4 location, please allow at least 8-10 weeks for us to thoroughly conduct a risk and safety assessment and to have adequate time to present a petition to the Global Risk Assessment Committee. If your proposal is approved, only then will your insurance be processed. Incomplete requests may adversely affect the outcome of the risk analysis.  International Travel is defined by USF World as travel to any location outside the 50 United States and the District of Columbia.  That means that student related travel to international waters and U.S. Territories must be registered with USF World as well as travel to foreign countries.

An asterisk (*) by a country name indicates there are regional USDOS Travel Advisories that must be taken into account.  This means that certain locations or regions in the country may be at a higher USDOS threat level such as a 3 or 4, meaning travel to those areas would require a GRAC petition even if the Country Threat level is a 1 or 2.

Please visit the U.S. Department of State Travel Advisories page to view the details of the advisory for the Country you are planning to travel to.  To learn what Travel Advisories are, you can visit this U.S. Department of State Safety and Security Messaging page.
