In accordance with UTS 190, all international travel will need to include some degree of risk review for the destination region. All travelers requesting international travel will need to complete a Pre-Trip Itinerary Review with On Call’s security team, which is where you can input trip details and schedule a call.
Should you book your travel reservations through CTP in Concur, CTP will send the request information to On Call for registration with OnSolve. On Call is a new resource that we can utilize to provide assistance to travelers in the event of medical emergencies, natural disasters, political upheavals, and more. OnSolve provides the technology platform that we can use to track all international travelers while out of the country.
Even if your travel was not booked through CTP in Concur, you can register your trip with On Call by sending your flight itinerary to email@example.com along with your cell number. Once registered, you will receive an email inviting you to download the OnSolve app near the trip start date. The app can be used to receive timely alerts based on your location and can also be used to indicate if there is an emergency.
A completed International Travel Checklist needs to be completed and attached to your report prior to submitting your travel request.
The level of risk for travel locations is based on a combination of information from the Travel Health Notices from the CDC and the Travel Advisories from the U.S. Department of State websites. Travel may be denied due to factors causing an area to pose a high threat level to safety and well-being of faculty/staff or students wanting to travel to that location.
Regardless of whether or not the app is installed, if you are abroad and in need of assistance you can contact the On Call International 24/7 Global Response Center via phone, live chat or email:
