Travel Registration & Insurance

Planning Domestic or International Travel?

All travel sponsored, organized, facilitated or encouraged by Creighton University must be under the oversight of an administrative unit of the University.

All international travel (faculty/staff/students) and all domestic travel beyond 75 miles from the Omaha metropolitan involving student groups and sponsored by Creighton University must also be registered with the Global Engagement Office.

The U.S. Department of State has issued a worldwide travel caution with information on the continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against U.S. citizens and interests throughout the world. U.S. citizens need to maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness. Creighton University members considering international travel should review the U.S. Department of State's Worldwide Caution page and consult the State Department's International Travel page for more information before finalizing plans.

The U.S. Department of State elevated their travel advisory to China to "Level 4: Do Not Travel."  Likewise, the CDC has issued a "Warning Level 3 Alert: Avoid Non-Essential Travel" to China. Several countries, including the U.S. have initiated evacuation of government personnel from Wuhan and some airlines have canceled flights to cities in China.

Until further notice, all Creighton University-sponsored travel to China is suspended.  

Travel will be able to resume once the U.S. Department of State lowers the warning level or we are able to work out a tailored risk mitigation plan.  Please contact René Padilla at or (402) 280-4745 if you have any questions about University-sponsored travel to China.
