There are currently two categories of travel:
- non-high risk, and
- high risk.
High risk is currently defined by SRC as countries where the Swedish Foreign Ministry advises against travel to all or part of the country concerned. The list of countries you will find by clicking on the link here on the right. It is constantly updated, so it is always important to check it before travelling.
If on list - complete a Travel Risk Assessment form
To meet the requirements of SRC's International Security framework, approved by the Secretary General in May 2017, SRC conducts a travel risk assessment for countries considered high risk.
If the country you wish to travel to is on the list, you need to complete a Travel Risk Assessment form, which you will also find on the right here.
Note that you have to complete the form if the country is on the list, even if you do not plan to visit the specific part of the country that the Swedish Foreign Ministry advises against travel to.
Please complete the form fully, taking careful note of the guidance written under each section. Remember that all of the information is needed to monitor your travel, conduct the risk assessment, and in case of an emergency.
Complete the form carefully
At any point in this process the Form may be sent back if it is not properly completed. Also, do not use previous versions of this form.
It can require quite a lot of research to complete the form. This can include contacting any Representative that SRC has in the country, Movement Partners that we have an agreement with concerning security, reading and asking questions about the applicable security regulations, checking visa requirements and making sure you have the right vaccinations. So please make sure you give yourself time to do this.
Once you have completed the form fully you send it to your Line Manager for approval. Please do not copy everyone involved in your travel; they will be included in the process later on.
Regional Head of Unit - first-line responsibility for security of SRC staff
If your Line Manager is OK with your travel they forward the form by email to the relevant Regional Head of Unit.
If the Regional Head of Unit, as the person with first-line responsibility for security of SRC staff traveling in their Region, approves the travel, they forward the form by email to the International Security Advisor.
The International Security Advisor makes a recommendation as to whether SRC can assume the risks involved in the travel to the International Director.
The International Director then makes a final decision and informs you as to whether your travel is approved. It is only at this point that you are authorized to begin your travel.
If you are uncertain about whether this process applies to your travel, or have questions about the process, please contact the relevant Regional Head of Unit in the first instance.
