Please note that your Concur profile must exactly match your name (first, middle, and last) as listed on any passport or driver's license. Your date of birth and gender are also required, as well as your full passport information. Names presented in any other form on your ticket may affect your ability to travel.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Department of State have announced the official requirement for citizens to present a valid passport to enter the United States. Some countries require that your passport be valid at least six months beyond the dates of your trip. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this requirement is not met.
Consider the following scenario: A country requires that your passport be valid for at least six months. Your passport is currently valid for seven months, but your trip is two months from now. At that point, your passport will be valid for only five months, which is not enough to satisfy that country's entry requirements. In this situation, you will need to renew your passport before making your trip.
If you are traveling under a government grant, restrictions may apply to air travel expenses. Please consult the specific terms of your grant and plan your expenses accordingly. For further information, please consult

Arrive at the airport early and be patient. Heavy travel volumes and the enhanced security processes may mean longer lines at security checkpoints. TSA works with airlines and airports to anticipate peak traffic and be ready for the traveling public.
3-1-1 security requirements mean you must travel with 3-ounce bottles or less; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. The one-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring, and the 3 ounce container size is a security measure.
