International Travel Insurance

ALL persons who travel to a foreign country on CSUSB related business/activities (regardless of funding source) are required to submit a fully completed and authorized "

" form to the Risk Management Office (SH-129) well in advance of your departure. 


Prioir to making your travel plans you must check the following travel warning lists:

If your destination appears on either list, you must submit your "

" form to Risk Management at least 20 days in advance of your departure.  If the country you are traveling to appears on the "War Risk" country list, you must submit the form 30 days in advance of your departure so that we may obtain the approval of the Chancellor's Office.


If your destination does not appear on these lists, you must submit your form at least 7 days prior to travel.

Please Note: As of January 2015, you only need to obtain President approval for travel to countries that appear on any of the warning lists above.

The Risk Management Office needs this advance notice of your international travel in order to secure coverage for you in CSURMA's foreign travel insurance program offered through ACE.  This insurance provides medical and other important coverage in the event of an emergency situation.  If we do not receive your travel authorization form well in advance of your travel, we may not be able to secure coverage for you at all.  Please note that your travel will be denied if the form is not received by the Risk Management Office with enough time to obtain insurance coverage for you.

Further, it is recommended that all employees traveling internationally sign up for the State Department's Safe Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
