General Information/Guidelines

International Travel

International Travel is a necessary component of a busy and engaged higher education institution. However, there are many precautions that can and should be made prior to one’s trip. Export control laws may impact your ability to travel to certain countries, the technology you take with you, or the information you present on your trip. Please contact our office at least two months in advance of an international business trip to discuss any restrictions that might apply.

Faculty and staff of Wright State can check out a laptop/travel kit through CaTS when working or conducting research out of the country. The travel kit consists of a laptop, domestic and international charger, and cell phone for connecting to Wright State’s virtual desktop server. 

For more information, or to request a laptop travel kit, contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827. You will be asked to sign a checkout agreement acknowledging your responsibilities and provide a FOAP for any accrued charges or damages to the equipment. Requests should be made at least three business days in advance; limited quantities are available. You are responsible for knowing the restrictions and following the laws of the country you are travelling to in regards to encryption technologies and internet use.
