Berklee-Sponsored Business Travel: For Faculty and Staff Only
At this time, Berklee is restricting all domestic and international Berklee-sponsored business travel through at least August 21, 2020. Exceptions may be allowed in extreme circumstances. To request an exemption from this policy, fill out this form.
Official travel is considered any travel paid for or sponsored by Berklee. Personal travel not associated with Berklee in any way, such as travel to your home country, is not considered official.
For all Berklee employees, this means:
Until further notice, you should not book any new travel reservations for Berklee-sponsored business travel, which includes all air, hotel, conferences and transportation.
You should cancel all existing Berklee-sponsored business travel arrangements for trips from now through at least August 21, 2020. This includes conference fees and any arrangements made outside of one of our travel partners. Securing full refunds, or credits toward future travel, is of top priority.
Travel Booked Through Egencia
If you have arranged travel through Berklee Travel partner, Egencia, you must contact the agency directly to arrange cancellation of your trip. You may reach Egencia by logging in to berklee.edu and clicking on the “Travel” icon in the Campus Tools menu on the top right.
Travel Booked Through Partners Travel or Air Marta
If you have arranged travel through Berklee’s other travel partners (e.g., the Agency, Inc./Air Marta or Partners Travel Management/the Travel Collaborative) and have not been contacted by these agencies about canceling your trip, please reach out to them directly:

General Travel Information
If you are traveling internationally or domestically, please be mindful of the current situation involving COVID-19 in the country or state you will be visiting. When traveling internationally, when you attempt to return to the U.S., you may be delayed and quarantined, or not allowed entry. At this time, the federal government has not indicated this will occur, although delays are more likely depending on the status of the country you are visiting. Furthermore, airlines may cancel flights to and from these destinations with little warning.
If you are traveling, please follow the guidelines for self-quarantine and continue to be aware of the symptoms of COVID-19, which can appear within two to 14 days after exposure.
