From: Global Education Office and Office of Export and Secure Research Compliance

Virginia Tech employees traveling abroad on university business are required to obtain an approved Travel Authorization (TA) prior to departure. Obtaining this approval using the TEM system at least 30 days prior to departure is ideal.  The information will allow the Global Education Office (GEO) and the Office of Export and Secure Research Compliance (OESRC) to assist travelers. Completing the Travel Authorization after the trip has occurred is not acceptable. 

If short-notice travel occurs, send an email to the Global Education Office (rpenson@vt.edu) and OESRC (oesrc@vt.edu) providing the following:

  • traveler’s name
  • destination(s) include cities/countries
  • departure and return dates
  • purpose of trip.

Guidance for the travel will be provided upon receipt of the email.
