TRIP is the Travel Request Information Processing system, which allows all personnel eligible under UN security arrangements to process security clearances online.
Why do I need TRIP?
UN security policy requires that all personnel eligible under UN security arrangements traveling on official business obtain a security clearance. It is also highly recommended that TRIP is used for personal travel.
This allows the United Nations to provide appropriate security support to all personnel eligible under UN security arrangements while they are traveling.
Why do I have to get a security clearance?
Security clearance is essential so that the Organization knows where you are in the event of unforeseen events that may endanger you or eligible family members travelling with you.
By providing accurate information about your itinerary and contact details, UN security officials can provide you with updated information and know where to reach you and your family if other security measures are needed to ensure your safety.
Security clearance ensures that you have completed the relevant training and other security related requirements prior to commencing your travel. Although Security Clearance is not required for personal travel, travelers are strongly encouraged to register personal travel in TRIP. In the event of a crisis or emergency, it may be possible to provide security support to UN personnel and eligible family members. Security clearance is an official requirement* and UN personnel are expected to comply with all United Nations system security regulations and procedures.
