International Travel for UO Business
When traveling abroad it is important to register your travel with the Office of Risk Management (ORM).
To register, you will need:
- 95 number
- Date of birth
- Dates of travel
- Travel destination(s)
- Index (if you have departmental approval to charge travel insurance) – not required at registration if not known
ORM also recommends that faculty, staff and students register their travel plans with the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy through the State Department’s travel registration website and enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency. If travelers do not have internet access, they may enroll directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
ORM offers supplemental travel insurance that is available to faculty, staff and students as detailed below.
Supplemental International Travel Insurance
The Office of Risk Management offers supplemental international travel insurance through Axis for faculty, staff and students who are travelling on behalf of the university.

The following countries are excluded from this insurance coverage; however, coverage may be able to be secured at an additional cost.
Continuing coverage through extended leisure travel (upto 14 days), as well as coverage for dependents.
