  • a list of students, staff and faculty traveling internationally
  • program start and end dates
  • travel dates (departure and arrival, departure and arrival)
  • emergency contact information for staff and faculty traveling

  • International Travel Form (1B)
  • International Travel Waiver (1C)
  • International Travel Pre-Departure Checklist (1D)
  • SOS International online travel liability modules.  Students and accompanying staff and faculty are required to complete a series of online modules delivered externally through SOS International.  Please note, SOS International replaces the previous CURIE travel module requirement.  Students and staff who previously completed the CURIE modules will now be required to complete the SOS International modules. For more information about how to access the SOS International modules, please contact Claire Kelly (clkelly@mta.ca) in Mount Allison's International Centre. IMPORTANT: all travelers must successfully complete the SOS International travel modules prior to the start of the program, trip, conference, internship etc.. The University is firm on this. It is a matter of personal and institutional liability.

3. Check the Global Affairs Canada website to see if there is a travel advisory for the destination that your group or student (s) are going to.

4. Register with Registry of Canadians Abroad (ROCA).  ROCA is a free service offered by Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada that keeps you connected to Canada in case of an emergency abroad, such as an earthquake or civil unrest, or an emergency at home. Whether you're planning a vacation or living abroad, sign up in a few minutes or less.  Or, if you are traveling with a group of 10 or more, you can register your group with ROCA.  In this case, staff and faculty should email roca@international.gc.ca.
