Risk Management, Insurance, and Tax

The University purchases insurance for protection against liability in foreign countries. To ensure that the appropriate coverage is in place, Risk Management is automatically notified of all University-related international programs, research or travel abroad. There are some destinations that require additional notification, as foreign liability coverage is not automatic in these locations. These include:

  • Afghanistan
  • Iraq
  • Republic of Belarus
  • Ukraine
  • Russia
  • Cuba

Anyone planning to travel to any of the excluded locations listed above must notify Risk Management at least 45 days prior to the trip for further review and/or approval from the insurance carrier. 

Any additional premium costs for travel to excluded countries will be the responsibility of the department organizing the trip.  

Please note that coverage is not always available/guaranteed.

Equipment: If you plan to bring Drexel owned equipment abroad, with a value of $250,000 or more, you must notify Insurance and Risk Management in order to obtain proper coverage.
