Upon your return from traveling abroad, review and complete the following items below.


  • Fill out reporting forms required by your department and funding source.

  • Fill out the Trip Report Form, if applicable.

  • Submit a Travel Expense Voucher (TEV) to document expenditures within 14 days of returning from your travel to justify your Travel Advance, if applicable. Ask your program administrator for more information.

Health Related Items:

  • Complete your immunizations and medications. If you started a series of Hepatitis shots, oral antibiotics, or malaria prophylaxis, finish them.

Your occupational health office can detail a return-to-work protocol.

  • Schedule an appointment with your physician after travel if you experience severe symptoms such as fever, prolonged cough, weight loss, diarrhea, abdominal pain, bleeding, or unusual rashes, or have known exposures to TB, bloodborne pathogens, GI pathogens, or exotic parasites.
