Summer 2021 Travel Restrictions

Beginning June 1st, the College will allow academic- and work-related domestic and international travel to resume for faculty, staff and students. In aditional to the guidelines and requirements outlined in the International Travel Policy, the College has established interim restrictions for domestic and international travel.

Some of those restrictions are as follows:

  • Domestic personal travel for faculty, staff and students will require only that persons traveling follow NYS guidance. 
  • International personal travel for faculty, staff and students remains unchanged. We continue to urge the postponement of international personal travel unless returning to a home country for personal and/or medical emergencies.
  • Domestic TC-related travel for faculty, staff and students requires following NYS guidance and guidance issued by the state or states to which you are traveling.
  • International TC-related travel for faculty, staff and students requires various approvals based on whether you are traveling to a Level 1 & 2 or Level 3 & 4 country as defined by the United States State Department. Many countries require an additional, more extensive approval process, which is outlined on the “Summer Travel Restrictions” table.

If you are a TC faculty member or administrator traveling on college-related business, OIA provides information to assist you before, during, and after your trip. Please see the OIA Travel Handbook for more information.

Please note the following deadlines regarding expense reimbursements per Accounts Payable:

  • Domestic Business Expense reimbursement requests must be submitted to the Accounts Payable Department for processing within 90 days after the completion of the event or travel to receive a non-taxable reimbursement. Kindly note that because the College is required to comply with the federal government’s regulations governing non-taxable employee’s business expenses, requests submitted after 90 days will be reimbursed but will be taxed and reported as income, as they do not meet the College’s Accountable Plan criteria.
  • International Business Expense reimbursement requests must be submitted to the Accounts Payable Department for processing within 90 days after the completion of the event or travel to receive a non-taxable reimbursement. Kindly note that because the College is required to comply with the federal government’s regulations governing non-taxable employee’s business expenses, requests submitted after 90 days will be reimbursed but will be taxed and reported as income, as they do not meet the College’s Accountable Plan criteria.
