When is it possible to get a travel advance

A travel advance can be paid out in special cases, such as:

  • travel and conferences for which payments must be made far in advance
  • travel over extended travel periods - sabbatical
  • travel where NTNU will cover some part of the expenses
  • temporary staff who can`t get a creditcard from Eurocard

Apply for travel advance

From January 2023, you apply for travel advance in the Self-service portal. The advance form will be converted to an expense report once it is approved.

Travel, courses and seminars paid in advance

If NTNU or others are paid for your travel, seminar, or course in advance (and you didn`t use your own money), then you need to check that in the form.

Payment in advance for sabbatical

If you need payment in advance in connection with a sabbatical you must attach the letter confirming your sabbatical grant or an estimate of your expenses. You will then avoid having tax deducted from your payment.
