International Travel Resources


All Yale University travelers have access to the Yale-supported International Toolkit, which includes resources, requirements, and information about travelling outside of the United States.

The Toolkit aids Yale University faculty, students, post-docs and staff conducting international activities, whether abroad or on campus. The toolkit has two main functions:

  • Give the Yale community a central point of access to resources at Yale and elsewhere that support our international activities.
  • Provide information and tools to enhance safety, reduce risks, and assist the Yale community with the legal and regulatory requirements that apply to international activities.

For Yale faculty, staff, and postdocs: Yale University's International Toolkit

The International Toolkit also includes a checklist for guidance prior to travel. The checklist can be accessed at Yale's International Toolkit website.

Travel Support

International SOS is a Yale-supported service that provides all Yale University business travelers and expatriates with quality health care and medical and security assistance services worldwide 24 hours a day.

International SOS can also provide a pre-travel departure briefing on relevant safety and security concerns for your destination. Prior to travel, Yale faculty are encouraged to reach out to International SOS to arrange a briefing for your country of origin (and transit, if applicable). Complete the ISOS travel briefing form and email it to ISOS will respond with your briefing within 72 business hours.

More information on International SOS can be found at Yale's International SOS Global Travel Assistance page.

YIGH Global Health Ethics Program

Kaveh Khoshnood, associate professor of epidemiology (YSPH), and Tracy Rabin, associate professor of medicine (YSM) co-lead the Global Health Ethics Program (GHEP) through YIGH. The GHEP is a great resource for the many different ethics considerations that accompanies global health research and practice. Ahead of planned research or travel, faculty and staff are encouraged to utilize the GHEP. For inquiries on GHEP, contact Kaveh or Tracy.
