Winter Travel Tips

Winter weather is almost here and just in time for winter break, so here are a few travel tips to keep in mind before you leave campus. Have a great break!

1. International students and scholars should consult the OISS travel guidance web page before you depart and check with OISS if you have any concerns about your travel plans. Also, make sure to check your immigration documents for a valid travel signature.  If the OISS signature on page two of your I-20 (F-1), or the lower right hand box of your DS-2019 (J-1), will be 12 months old when you return to the U.S., you need to get a new signature. Simply bring your immigration documents to OISS during walk-in hours M-F between 12pm - 5pm and we will sign your form.

2. Contact International SOS travel assistance:  https://ogc.yale.edu/erm/ISOS
All members of the Yale community are automatically enrolled with International SOS (ISOS), which provides pre-travel consultations and 24/7/365 domestic and international emergency medical, security and travel assistance for Yale travelers and accompanying family while more than 100 miles from home. Install the International SOS travel app on your smartphone for easy access to the services.

3. Register your travel with Yale:  http://world-toolkit.yale.edu/yale-travel-registry-instructions. In the event of a major emergency, Yale will be able to contact you.
