For reimbursement purposes, International (Foreign) Travel follows regular University out-of-state travel regulations. However, due to the risk management requirements of the nature of international/foreign travel, certain additional approval processes are required to insure compliance with all federal regulations and restrictions regarding international/foreign travel.
For purposes of this policy, international/foreign travel is defined as any University of South Alabama related travel outside of the United States as well as United States territories and possessions (also known as “United States Insular Areas”). Travel to Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, Puerto Rico, etc should be processed as domestic travel. Refer to: U.S. Department of the Interior for a complete listing of US territories and insular areas. (Faculty Professional Leave or Travel Authorization Forms (page 2 and Exhibit A) are required, however, even for travel to U. S. Insular areas.)
