Welcome to the Overseas Visit Proposal System (OVP)

All staff looking to travel outside of the UK must submit an online Overseas Visit Proposal form. All visits must be approved prior to travel, even if entirely funded by external sources. Failure to submit a proposal will result in a travel request being declined.

Remember, before your visit:

  • Alongside the OVP, you should complete a Travel Risk Assessment. PLEASE NOTE: this should be completed and signed by your manager but then kept by you for your information - it does NOT need to be submitted centrally.
  • Visit proposals should be submitted well in advance. If you need to submit a ‘late’ proposal (within 31 days) contact ovp@leedsbeckett.ac.uk

After your visit:

Once your OVP is approved, you can make travel arrangements by contacting the Staff Travel team on (stafftravel@leedsbeckett.ac.uk) or Key Travel (the university's travel agent as of December 2016) on gold@keytravel.com or 0845 1220106.
