Safety and Security Videos

Travel to challenging and remote environments requires extensive research, planning, and preparation. The videos and resources below can help you start the process. We also encourage you to meet with a member of our International Safety & Security team to discuss your travel and receive feedback on your plans. Challenging opportunities can be rewarding, but you should always prioritize your safety, security, and well-being.

Remember, if you need medical, mental health, or security advice and support while overseas, call International SOS at +1-617-998-0000 or connect through the Assistance App. And don't forget to register you travel in MyTrips.

Remote Road Travel

Road traffic accidents are one of the leading causes of death or injury abroad. Travelers are particularly vulnerable in more remote locations. Learn about the conditions of road travel at your destination and make safe transportation and travel choices.

Natural Disasters

Natural disasters can happen anywhere, at any time. Be informed, have a plan, and practice and prepare for natural disasters abroad.

Traveling in Conflict Zones

Traveling, working, or researching in a conflict zone is challenging and could be dangerous. Research and understand the risks, put plans in place to mitigate them, and always prioritize your personal safety and security over your academic and research goals.
