Step 2: Required Forms
Upload a completed participant list to BearsAbroad. Be sure to complete all fields in the roster. All participants (faculty, staff, students, and guests/minors) should be listed on the participant list.
If minors will be accompanying your group, please notify the Center for Global Engagement. Paper forms for minors will need to be generated by the Office of General Counsel.
If you or any participants will be taking Baylor-owned technology, make sure that you printed the Export License Exception form that is sent via email after completion of the travel registration. You will carry this document with you.
Step 3: International Insurance
Baylor faculty, staff, and students are enrolled in the university's international insurance policy when traveling abroad on Baylor business or using Baylor funds. The cost of insurance is $2/day of travel per participant. If guests (spouse, dependent, etc.) will accompany you for any part of your international travel, they are also enrolled in the international policy. The Baylor insurance costs will be assessed to the sponsoring department upon return. The International Travel Approval Form will serve as the approval for the chargeback.
Baylor international travel is covered by an On Call insurance policy. Your travel registration is your enrollment for insurance. A digital card will be sent via email after completion of the travel registration. Scroll to the bottom of the digital card and add the contact information to your smartphone via QR code or link.
