Interim changes affecting this Procedure appear in the COVID-19 Policy Addendum.
 
 

UNSW travel update

 
Given the change in government travel restrictions, UNSW travel advice for students and staff travelling on official UNSW business has been updated. Domestic travel is now allowed but only if the proposed travel:
 
  • - Complies with current Federal and State/Territory (for NSW residents) or ACT (for ACT residents) travel guidelines 
  • - Is funded from restricted funds or paid from an external source
  • - Includes plans to comply with an appropriate COVIDSafe plan while in transit and at each destination
  • - Has been approved by the relevant Head of School or Director.
 
If you would normally use MyTravel@UNSW for bookings, or SafeSys for fieldwork, this process will still apply.
 
In exceptional circumstances, travel funded from unrestricted funds may be approved if it meets the guidelines above and is approved by a member of the Senior Leadership Team.

Statement on financial restrictions

Due to the economic impact of COVID-19 on the University, a series of financial restrictions are in place which will take precedence over UNSW policies and procedures for this period.
 
The impact of COVID-19 on the University is profound and subject to existing contractual obligations all staff are expected to minimise, delay or cancel any expenditure that does not relate to essential activities. If staff need assistance in relation to current contractual obligations, they may contact the UNSW Legal Office for advice.
 
Implementation of these measures is effective immediately. The continuation of these measures, and any changes to these measures, will be at the discretion of the President and Vice-Chancellor.
