Steps to request and receive approval are as follows 1. Complete the Coronavirus Domestic Travel Questionnaire in consultation with your unit head or his/her designated appointee. 2. Submit the completed and signed questionnaire to your unit head. 3. Unit head will review, approve and forward the questionnaire to me for approval and final submission to RII. RII will review and return for revision or approve. 4. Upon travel request approval by RII, your unit business office will initiate a domestic travel authorization using the standard travel authorization form and process. International Travel is permitted for essential research and non research activities. Please refer to the travel authorization web page for policies and travel request procedures.
