International Travel Preparation

The Office of the General Counsel has prepared updated guidance regarding international travel preparation and law enforcement interactions at the border.  The guidance is intended to help MIT community members minimize the likelihood of travel disruption through proper preparation for international travel, as well as to provide information on interactions with immigration and law enforcement agents when entering or leaving the U.S. The bulletin provides practical guidance, including an example of documentation to procure if it is necessary to travel with MIT data or materials.  The bulletin also contains links to other useful resources, including PDF “pocket reference cards” with key points that can be carried when traveling. The updated guidance can be accessed by using an MIT Certificate and can be found here.
