An MIT institute-wide travel registry is currently under development. Until its implementation, please be aware of the following available tools and information.
Registration is required for students traveling with MIT-sponsored programs. Please contact your program manager for information on how to register your trip. If uncertain, contact Todd Holmes for advice.
For MIT faculty and staff with questions on how to register students traveling through your program, contact Malgorzata Hedderick in Global Education and Career Development (GECD) (617-253-9358) for more information.
For Students, Faculty, Staff
International SOS (ISOS): Please be advised that MIT’s international assistance provider, ISOS, is available to all MIT travelers. ISOS provides a MyTrip tool from the MIT membership portal. With ISOS MyTrip, you can subscribe to the various countries of travel you designate and receive travel briefs that advise on current travel risks and provide safety advice. MIT’s membership number is 11BSGC000066.
When in need of global security or medical assistance or information, call ISOS at +12159428478 (global collect call line). Please save this number in the mobile telephone that will be used abroad, and you may also contact ISOS via the app available on the membership portal.
STEP: Beyond registration with MIT, all travelers are advised to register with the U.S. Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program. While the U.S. Embassy will only provide direct assistance to U.S. citizens, non-U.S. citizens are also able to sign up for available STEP email alerts for countries that they choose.
For non-US citizens, you should register with the country of your citizenship. Please contact your embassy to verify whether your country has an embassy in the locations to which you will travel, and to determine whether there is a travel enrollment program similar to STEP.
