Travelers should exercise prudence when traveling to a foreign location. A traveler should review the U.S. Department of State’s List of State Sponsors of Terrorism and Foreign Travel Advisories before making travel arrangements.
Rates for foreign travel shall not begin until the date and time of arrival in the foreign country from the U.S. and shall terminate on the date and time of departure from the foreign country to the U.S. When traveling between foreign countries, reimbursement is calculated at the applicable meal rate based on the departed location until arrival at the new location.
The Fly America Act (49 U.S.C. 40118) requires that all federally funded travel use a U.S. flag carrier or U.S. flag carrier service provided under a code-share agreement, except under specific situations. The U.S. has entered into several air transport agreements that allow federal funded transportation services for travel to use foreign air carriers under certain circumstances. These “Open Skies Agreements” can be viewed on the U.S. General Services Administration’s website.
