Trip registration is required for those traveling on official University business off-campus (>100 miles) or internationally. Accurate information on travel plans is needed in order to deliver the services and protections the travel insurance policy offers.
University travelers include employees, medical residents, students, fellows, and guests with travel paid by the University.
*Guests participating in a UCLA sponsored and supervised event with travel paid for by the University.
There are two ways that travel can be registered:
- If travel is booked through UC Travel or Connexxus, your travel itinerary will automatically be registered with iJET/Worldcue. Check your email for your “welcome email” and complete your travel profile.
- If travel is not booked through UC Travel or Connexxus, you must register your out of state or international trip using the Away website. Check your email for your “welcome email” and complete your travel profile.
Region/Country Specific Travel Insurance Information
- As of June 2018 security benefits such as security extraction are suspended by WorldAware (formerly iJET) for: Nicaragua, South Sudan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen. There is no prohibition from travel there, but security related costs will not be covered by WorldAware.
Travel to Polar Regions (e.g. Greenland and Antarctica) will require that you provide additional information (return completed form to UCLAtravelalerts@irm.ucla.edu) prior to your travels, including coordinating your evacuation from these areas with United Healthcare Global. Evacuation from these areas can necessitate additional planning and resources.
The Worldcue system notifies Insurance & Risk Management about travelers and their itineraries thus providing critical information in the event of an emergency. It is therefore of utmost importance to complete your travel profile in iJET/Worldcue upon receipt of your "welcome email".
We encourage you to take the necessary steps to assure your safety.
