    Travel Risk Assessment

    Those travelling overseas should assess any risks involved using the Pre-travel risk assessment form. The person authorising the travel should assure themselves that the arrangements are acceptable and hold documentary evidence to confirm this. General guidance on such risks is available here and information on how to complete the risk assessment form is detailed in the form itself. The expectation is that persons wanting to travel complete the pre-travel risk assessment form with support from others where appropriate, altering the document as necessary. Separate guidance is also provided for conducting Fieldwork in connection with your visit, which incorporates things to consider whilst preparing your risk assessment and whilst contingency planning.

    We can provide an insurance letter to support a visa application for business travel only. Please contact Insurance Services advising:

    • your name, your dates of travel, the country or countries you are travelling to, the reason for your trip

    Please allow at least 4 working days

    The Business Travel insurance does not provide cover for the failure to obtain/maintain any necessary documents required for the country you are travelling to (e.g visas, passports, permits etc).
