uOInternational's Travel Safety team helps students, faculty and staff plan safe and secure travel outside of Canada.

Travelling internationally may expose you to unique risks.  It is important for travellers and trip organizers to take the time to research the risks involved in travelling abroad and to develop a plan to mitigate those risks. uOInternational is here to support you with the policy, procedures, and guidance to plan for safe and secure trips outside of Canada.

uOttawa travellers should be aware of the International Travel Safety Policy.  The information below summarises the key requirements for students and others travelling on University business.
