All students, staff, and faculty are required (per Policy 8.5) to add their Cornell-related international travel plans to the Cornell International Travel Registry.
Should there be an emergency or developing situation that could impact you or your travel plans, your registration helps Cornell’s International Travel Health and Safety team locate and contact you in order to provide resources you may need. This system also incorporates the International Travel Advisory and Response Team (ITART) petition to travel to elevated-risk destinations.
Note: Due to the high rate of vaccination among the Cornell community, we have removed COVID-19 travel restrictions for students, faculty, and staff traveling on Cornell business. This shift requires travelers to be responsible for understanding potentially complex border restrictions and entry and re-entry requirements. Due to changing conditions, travel policies are subject to updates, as the health and safety of the Cornell community are of the utmost importance.
Easier Than Ever
Four to eight weeks before travel, Log-in to the website and then select “Add Trip” from the menu.
Provide your trip information, including addresses for each leg of your trip.
If traveling to an elevated-risk destination and required to do so (see the current policy), you must complete the ITART petition. Petitions are triggered by rules built into the travel registry. If your itinerary requires a petition, the travel registry will prompt you for additional information about, and a rationale for, your elevated risk travel plans.
Submit and travel with added peace of mind. You’ll receive a confirmation email should you need to show proof of registration.
If a registration includes a required ITART petition, ITART will review approximately four weeks before travel. Once approved, you may consider yourself registered.
