Our winter session was dedicated to discussing international travel logistics and resources as it relates to travel preparation, outbound visas, health and safety, and travel data. We also highlighted our latest resources available to the Penn community: faculty support for global leave and the global supplier form.
For our fall session, we hosted a panel discussion on payments and reimbursements to Foreign Non-Affiliates in the U.S. Panelists shared current processes and considerations for paying foreign non-affiliates visiting campus, including payment options, tax and visa considerations, and the procure-to-pay process.
Continuing a summer tradition, this GAWG session was a networking breakfast where attendees had a chance to interact and learn about what departments/centers were doing globally over the summer. Attendees were also given a chance, after the breakfast to stay and attend a MyTrips training session. MyTrips is Penn's new international travel registry system.
GSS and International Risk Management have partnered to update the Penn International Travel Registry. Attendees came and learned about the new system, called MyTrips. We discussed how it works and when it goes into effect.
The fall session was dedicated to outbound group travel visas and the session welcomed our Penn preferred vendor, CIBT, to present and answer questions.
Our annual summer networking breakfast highlighted what's new at GSS and Penn Global including updates to our Penn Global website.
Responding to the needs of our constituents, this GAWG session focused on Outbound Visas: Improving Guidance. Attendees asked questions and made recommendations to make the process smoother and easier.
