Before you Travel
The SJSU Travel Checklist provides step-by-step instructions on requesting university authorization for business travel and assists travelers with planning.
The SJSU Travel Guide [pdf] provides policy information on allowable expenses and restrictions.
High Hazard Travel (International)
For all international travel, please check U.S. Department of State Travel Advisories and the CSURMA's High Hazardous Country List [pdf] to determine whether your destination is considered "high hazard."
If traveling to a high hazard country:
- Complete the Travel to High Hazardous Countries Request [DocuSign] to get pre-approval from your Approving Official. Include a copy with your travel authorization request in FTS.
- Submit your travel authorization request [pdf] well in advance; the travel authorization must arrive at the President's Office at least 45 days before the department date. This will give 2 weeks to obtain President's Office approval (and Chancellors Office approval for War Risk Countries). This will also allow time for the university to procure international travel insurance.
