Welcome to the Cornell International Travel Registry & ITART Petition

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

  1. Log in to the website and then select “Add Trip” from the menu. If a student is traveling (or a staff or faculty member is traveling with students) to an Elevated Risk destination, please follow step 3 below at least two to four weeks prior to departure.

  2. Provide your trip information, including addresses for each leg of your trip.

  3. 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. 

  4. Submit and travel with added peace of mind. You’ll receive a confirmation email should you need to show proof of registration.

  5. All students who are traveling on Cornell-related international travel must complete the Assumption of Risk release prior to the departure of any trip. Please contact the Office of Risk Management to request the appropriate Assumption of Risk and Release form. RMI requires a minimum of 30 days before travel to process the Assumption of Risk and Release form.

  6. If a registration includes a required ITART petition, the committee will review it approximately four weeks before departure. Last-minute petitions may delay travel plans. If approved, you may consider yourself registered.
