International Travel - Staff & Students

Registering students who are travelling internationally (outside of Canada) is beneficial for both the student and the university. In the event of an emergency, the university will be able to assist the student as they know the details of their travel plans. There are also many situations where travelers must be accounted for and/or contacted, so registration with the university provides another layer of protection for the student traveler. By registering, students can be quickly accounted for, contacted, and given assistance and assurance where required.

StFX's International Travel and Safety Policy was developed with the primary concern being the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff. The policy mandates that all faculty, staff, and students planning international travel that includes students must:

Apply for travel approval a minimum of 45 days before travel; and
Register their travel details a minimum of 30 days before travel.


• When a faculty or staff member (in the policy, referred to as employee) is organizing travel including students, this faculty or staff member is responsible to apply for approval. Once approval is granted, all students must still register their travel details individually, providing basic information such as emergency contact, etc.

• When students are travelling independently they are responsible to apply for approval here.

• Approval will be granted or denied 7 - 14 days after the submission.

Please review the StFX International Travel and Safety Students to learn more about the responsibilities of students and employees travelling with them.
