Pre-Departure Requirements

All student travelers must complete the following pre-departure requirements at least 30 days before travel departure:

  1. Complete the International Trip Forms and send it to your NU-Q Trip Administrator.
  2. Complete the online Canvas NU-Q International Risk Management Training. The course contains two parts: Part 1: Health & Wellness and Part 2: Safety & Security. Once each of the presentations are finished, make sure to complete the quizzes* (Students must get 10/10 questions correct in order to pass them). *Please note that the training completion is valid for one academic year.Canvas.PNG
  3. Students must also contribute 500 QAR toward the trip**. Students on financial aid may request to have the fee waived. **Some trips are exempted from this fee. Consult with your NU-Q Trip Administrator.
  4. In order to be compliant with our policy, students must also be clear on their payments. Contact our Student Finance Department more information.
  5. Students must keep the international health insurance information that the NU-Q Trip Administrator will provide for the trip. Questions related to coverage should be directed to the NU-Q Health & Wellness Counselor.
  6. Complete rest of requirements defined in the Student Travel Protocol.

ADDITIONAL Requirements for high-risk destinations

If your destination is rated level 3 or 4 by the U.S. DOS Travel Advisory, reconsider travel (high risk destinations). Review the U.S. Department of State (U.S. DOS) Travel Advisory and the Destination Health Information (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “CDC”) before traveling.

Student travel to U.S. DOS rating Level 4 (Do Not Travel) or CDC Warning Level 3 designations is prohibited, although exceptions may be granted. Student travel planning to visit countries under a Travel Advisory Level 3  (Reconsider Travel) must seek approval from NU-Q. To request approval, Students and Trip Leaders are obliged to complete a Travel Permission Request (see sample) AT LEAST 3 MONTHS prior planned departure date. The International Risk Assessment Committee will review the plan. Read the Travel Permission Request Guideline.

ADDITIONAL Requirements for students traveling independently

Students traveling on their own (not accompanied by NU-Q faculty or staff member) are responsible for the planning and coordination of travel. Students traveling on their own must complete a Risk Management Plan (see sample) in addition to the general pre-departure requirements. For more information, please read the Student Travel Protocol.
