Travel Guidance

Updated: October 5, 2021, 10:30 a.m. CDT


Domestic Travel will follow approval protocols that were in place pre-COVID.


Faculty are encouraged to carefully evaluate whether international travel is warranted and essential to the Texas A&M University mission since the COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing and some countries have high infection rates.

All international travel requests must be routed through Concur to the appropriate vice president or dean to obtain mission-essential approval prior to departure.

Travel to destinations identified as high-to-extreme risk on the TAMUS Travel Advisory List will automatically route to the Office of Risk, Ethics & Compliance for a risk assessment prior to being routed to the Office of the Provost for final approval consideration.


Student travel as part of a student organization must be routed through Student Affairs. Academic-related student travel is at the discretion of individual departments.

Information regarding Education Abroad programs - including cancelations and other guidelines - can be found at the Education Abroad website.
