Emergency Abroad? We Can Help!

Emergency situations can surprise even the most well-prepared travelers. Duke offers Emergency Response resources to provide immediate assistance when health and safety are at risk abroad, including 24/7 support from International SOS and, for employees, CIGNA Medical Benefits Abroad.

Emergency Response

Register Your Upcoming Travel

The Travel Registry is Duke's primary resource for providing support to its international travelers, and all travel outside of the United States supported by Duke must be registered. When an emergency occurs outside of the United States, Duke can use the Travel Registry to proactively contact its faculty, staff, and students in the affected location to ensure their safety and offer assistance if necessary.

Prepare Before Your Trip Begins

Traveling around the globe can be a wonderful opportunity that also presents challenges that you would not typically face when traveling domestically.  To ensure that you are as prepared as possible, our checklist for international travelers provides recommendations to consider before your trip begins.

Ensure Compliance with Duke's Travel Policy

Duke is committed to promoting the health, safety and security of individuals when they travel outside of the United States with Duke Support.  This policy is administered by the Duke University Provost with the advice and support of the Duke University Global Travel Advisory Committee ("GTAC").
