Traveling internationally with ND Law? 
Register your travel

The University urges all faculty and staff traveling abroad for work to register their travel at

Jaime Signoracci, associate director of international travel safety for Notre Dame International, explains why it is important to register your travel.

“The University partners with leading travel assistance firms to continuously monitor the world for incidents and events that have the potential to impact our international travelers wherever they might be. By registering your trip, NDI will know where you are, how to best contact you in an emergency to confirm your safety, and how to quickly assist you when you need it most,” she says.

The registry and the Travel & Safety section of the NDI website, also offer travelers access to pre-departure resources, information, and advice on a wide variety of topics, from traveling with medications to practicing good situational awareness to what to do if you find yourself in an earthquake. 

Have a great week!
