Registering International Travel

Knowing where you are lets us help you when it matters most. When an incident occurs abroad, we rely on the itineraries in the Harvard Travel Registry to inform us of students, faculty, and staff in the region who may need medical or security assistance through Harvard Travel Assist.

Registration is required for students traveling with Harvard sponsorship and strongly recommended for faculty and staff. You should also register with the embassy of your country of citizenship.

Your Individual Registration

To register your own trip, log in to the Travel Registry with your Harvard ID and PIN and follow these steps:

  1. Enter your flights, lodging, ground transit (if applicable), and emergency contacts.
  2. Save your information by clicking "Submit" on the "Review & Submit" page, even if you have more information to add later.
  3. Return to edit your trip details if there are changes to your itinerary or you obtain a local cell phone.

It's incredibly important to update your information if it changes so that we focus our efforts on the right people in the right places during an emergency.

Registering on behalf of Others

If you're a Harvard employee registering on behalf of a faculty or staff member, follow the instructions for using the travel import worksheet.

Or, if you're registering a spouse, dependent, or other individual who does not have a Harvard ID and PIN, contact us first at +1-617-495-1111 or travelregistry@harvard.edu. Once you've talked with us, you can follow the instructions for using the travel import worksheet.

Group Registration

If you’re registering a group of Harvard travelers, you can do so in bulk by using the travel import worksheet.

Embassy Registration

After registering with Harvard, you're strongly encouraged to register with the embassy of your country of citizenship.
