Welcome to the GU-Q Travel Page
This site was created as a resource to Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) community to assist with business and personal travel needs. This site shares information on university resources and policies for all travelers, including, but not limited to insurance coverage, health, safety and logistical tips as well as financial policies and procedures.
Tawfeeq Travel is GU-Q’s dedicated travel management company and represented by Mr. Salman Hanif, as the in-house travel consultant.
In August 2022 the Travel Office moved and is now located at 1D66 (the office just before the entrance to the Office of Finance and Research Compliance suite).
Travel Office telephone: +974 4457- 8350 or just dial 8350 if calling from a GU-Q office phone.
Office Hours: Sunday-Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Employees can initiate booking their approved GU-Q funded travel by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
- Business Purpose
- Business travel start and end dates
- Worktags (Funding)
For personal travel, please call or visit the Travel Office.
The university mandates that all employees on university related business travel register their travel online through Georgetown’s International SOS Portal. Business-related travel airline bookings arranged and ticketed through the GU-Q Travel Office are automatically registered with Georgetown International SOS.
Business Travel Policy
GU-Q employees are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the travel policy.
Employees who receive medical insurance as part of their employment with GU-Q should check with GU-Q HR about what international coverage is available. If you are enrolled in a non-university plan you should confirm coverage with that provider directly. Remember to inquire about emergency medical evacuation and repatriation. Consult with the Travel Office should you need additional coverage for the time that you are traveling overseas.
