Duke provides travel advances for students to pay for Duke related travel expenses. Duke also provides travel advances, on an extremely limited basis, for employees who are traveling on Duke related business to locations where the Corporate Card, a Visa product, is not readily accepted.
The Travel Advance Form must be approved and signed by the appropriate business manager or the person to whom the traveler reports. The traveler or a person who reports to the traveler cannot approve the form.
Travel advance requests are processed within five to seven business days after the request is received by Employee Travel & Reimbursement.
