UAS International Travel Assistance Program

The University of Alabama System (UAS) maintains a robust program to help protect and assist our international travelers engaged in Educational Travel and Business Travel abroad. All travel involves risk, requiring individuals to be primarily responsible for their personal safety, security and health. The UAS International Travel Assistance Program has been established to assist travelers in times of unexpected circumstances that call for prompt action. While not a substitute for personal preparation and diligent emergency precautions, our objective is to provide assistance in times of need.

What Should I Do Before My Trip?

First, register your travel plans with your individual campus.  To receive destination alerts and access important medical and security information, download the International SOS Assistance App to your smartphone. Carry your International SOS membership card with you at all times.
