Important Federal Regulations for International Travel
Taking special research equipment when traveling abroad (e.g., drones, GPS, surveying systems, infared cameras, laser scanners) may require an export license depending on product type and destination. Contact Brown's Export Control Officer for assistance with export license requirements.
Anyone traveling to an embargoed country may be subject to Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations. These regulations affect nearly all transactions with those countries without regard to content or purpose. Contact Brown's Export Control Officer to assist with OFAC license requirements. For a complete list of embargoed countries and prohibited transactions see http://www.treas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/sanctions/.

The system also recommends appropriate vaccinations and sends you reminders when it’s time for follow-up boosters. This information will be available to you and, with your consent, ISOS medical staff, to better assist you in the event of an emergency. You will need to set up a separate User ID and Password to use when logging into the Emergency Record site.
