Initiating International Business Travel
All UF faculty and staff who plan to travel internationally on university business on or after Jan. 1, 2022, will be asked to read and acknowledge applicable UF regulations, policies, and directives to adhere with this requirement.
Departments will be asked to ensure those traveling internationally on university business provide a signed acknowledgment, which will be attached to the international travel authorization in myUFL. Departments may use the template document that will be provided, or they may adapt existing documents to include the required language for ease of use with their unit’s processes.
This informational video provides further details about the new process, which is outlined below.
