24/7 Assistance Abroad
Basic Page Sidebar Menu Travel Guidance
When you are abroad and need assistance, Penn is here to help.
Students, faculty and staff on Penn-affiliated trips abroad are entitled to International SOS membership. International SOS is available 24/7 for medical and security consultation, doctor and hospital referrals, guarantee of payment of medical bills and emergency evacuation assistance. Please contact International SOS before seeking medical care abroad so that payment can be arranged in advance through Penn's travel medical insurance.
If you have had an incident abroad, we encourage you to let us know. This allows you to put the incident in your own words and it helps us provide better support to our international traveling community. To report an incident, please use the link below.
