Business Trips

HSE faculty and researchers employed under work contracts are allowed to leave the country either on their non-working days (days off, Russian public holidays, or during a paid or unpaid leave) or when going on a business trip. Leaving the country on a workday without going through formal procedures is non-compliant with the terms of your work contract.

These procedures need to be completed in advance before going on a business trip, no matter what funds you use to cover your business trips expenses. Otherwise your business trip will not be registered. Please see the guidelines below for more details on the procedure.

Find it out from your coordinator if you have funds available for your business trip:

  • For trips funded from the Research Fund (tenure-track professors) visit this page.
  • For trips funded by HSE-Perm visit this page.

For more details, please see University regulations on business trips. We strongly recommend reviewing these requirements before you go on your business trip.
