In recent months, diplomatic relationships between the U.S. and Cuban governments have been in the headlines. US Government Restrictions on travel to Cuba (governed by the embargo) have been lessened due to changes in OFAC policy. We have also seen the opening of some bilateral economic changes to past policy.
Despite the actions by the US Government, UM policy on UM business related travel to Cuba has not changed. Please be advised that UM business travel to Cuba remains restricted and still requires pre-approval from the Provost (Gables), from the Dean (Med School), General Counsel and the Department of Risk Management.
Non-Restricted International Travel for UM Business:
Faculty and staff traveling on University business to non-restricted countries do not need to complete the International Travel Authorization Form. However, they will need to register their travel plans with Red24 and print a copy of the UM Travel Assistance Card prior to travel. This information must be retained as it includes the policy number, relevant telephone information and services at a glance.
