The travel desk will assist you in making arrangements for both domestic and foreign travel. Travel on Grants is highly regulated.
Starting January 22, 2018 all domestic U.S. air travelers will be required to show a driver's license issued by a state that is compliant with (or has been granted an extension for) the U.S. Government's REAL ID Act. Oregon has been granted an extension until October 10, 2018.
For those with identification from states that are not compliant, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will accept alternative forms of identification such as a passport, global entry card, or U.S. Military ID.
If the traveler cannot provide an acceptable form of identification, they will not be permitted through the security checkpoint. (TSA Accepted Identification)

OSU's International Travel Registry
As of April 1, 2017, Oregon State University now requires all travelers to register their foreign travel regardless of funding type. The International Travel Registry is maintained by the Division of International Programs. Proxy registration is available for those arranging travel for others.
- Register as soon as you have the following:
- Confirmed travel dates and location(s)
- Contact information for yourself abroad and a local emergency contact
- Passport (in case you lose your passport)
- Automatic enrollment in the Travel Accident & Sickness Plan which includes access to the 24/7 safey and security emergency services.
- In the event of an emergency, this registry will enable OSU to locate and contact you to coordinate help.
- The registry allows travelers to securely store a copy of their passport.
Foreign travel on grants must still be pre-approved by the Office of Sponsored Research and Award Administration using the Foreign Travel Authorization form.
We strongly recommend you leave contact information with your office manager, supervisor, or unit manager and register with the U.S. Department of State - Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). This free service allows the Department of State to assist you in case of an emergency. You will receive important information from the Embassy about safety conditions; they can contact you in an emergency, whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency; and they can help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency.
