Uppsala University has employees, visiting researchers, scholarship holders, doctoral students and other members who often travel abroad on business. Sometimes their travel takes them to high risk areas.
The risks can be divided into several categories:
Business travel insurance
The business travel insurance policy covers all domestic and foreign travel that employees and sponsors undertake on behalf of Uppsala University. The policy covers the entire business trip and is equivalent to a normal travel insurance policy. Remember to take a Swedish State Business Travel Insurance Certificate with you. Contact the administrator at your department/equivalent to obtain the insurance card.

Get to know your destination
When travelling abroad, you need more information and preparation than for a domestic trip. You need information ranging from the country’s history, customs, religion and politics, to crime, climate, diseases and more. A little more detailed intelligence-gathering is highly recommended, especially when travelling to higher risk regions and for longer stays abroad. You can use a simple Google search or consult www.ui.se.
When travelling, you often find yourself in unfamiliar situations. This calls for extra attention on your part. Here are some points to bear in mind:
Taking a taxi
Before renting a car, you should consider the following:
Staying at hotels
In emergency situations, always contact the local emergency number.
Information security during travel
Information security after travel
