Export Control Travel

Office of Research, Scholarship, and Sponsored Programs

When traveling outside of the United States, researchers need to know their responsibilities under export control regulations. While travel to most countries does not create an export control issue, export control regulations can affect:

  • Traveling with devices for a conference or meeting such as
    • Laptops;
    • Encryption products;
    • Data or technology; or,
    • Blueprints, drawings or schematics.
  • Carrying unpublished technical information related to a defense article
  • Carrying or providing technology or data to a private conference or meeting (in which attendees are limited and notes are not permitted)
  • Exchanges of goods and services in certain countries
  • Trips to sanctioned or embargoed countries
  • Conducting business with restricted or debarred individuals or entities
