Faculty Staff International Travel Registration

Employees traveling internationally on SMU business or using SMU funds must have their travel authorized and registered before travel. This includes all international travel supported by SMU, including conferences, research, teaching, training, and recruitment, etc. Please do not book/register personal travel or other non-SMU travel.

Step 1

Begin by submitting a Concur Travel Request. This request will be routed for approval by the requesting department. Risk Management approval is no longer needed before an itinerary is booked.

Step 2

Upon approval of the Concur Travel Request, the traveler may complete their booking through Concur. Once the itinerary has been finalized, it is uploaded into Safeture.

*If you are booking travel outside of Concur, you must follow these instructions for travel registration. 

Step 3

Safeture will send an automated email with instructions to complete the mandatory Pre-Travel Form and the assigned Travel Risk Awareness e-Learning. The trip is not fully approved until upon completion of the Pre-Travel Form. 

Step 4

Familiarize yourself with current Travel restrictions and download the Safeture mobile app.
