If you have not already done so please fill out the JINA-CEE visitor application:
There are a number of requirements imposed by the
funding agencies in order to be able to reimburse airfare. Travelers
must book the lowest priced coach/economy class airfare available.
Travelers also must always travel with US affiliate carriers provided
they serve the particular route (this is the "fly america act").
Note that it is not sufficient that the aircraft is a US carrier's
aircraft, or that the flight number is a US carrier's flight number,
but the ticket must be issued by a US carrier.
In times of code sharing this is non-trivial. Therefore, we require
that flights are either booked through JINA-CEE/MSU staff (see below)
or that JINA-CEE/MSU staff has approved a particular flight before you
book it. When we book your flight it can also be direct billed,
which simplifies the process considerably. Please do not book your
own flight without contacting JINA-CEE/MSU staff first.
Be sure to keep all airline tickets/receipts (including
you boarding passes), or if you have an e-ticket we will also need
a copy of 2 of the following elements as support:
- on-line/e-mail print out;
- copy of credit card or bank statement showing airfare charges;
- passenger receipt ( this is obtained during check-in or
at the KIOSK machines. See
the samples) PLEASE NOTE: boarding passes are not considered
