Where a University employee is required to incur expenditure on University business, an advance may be made to assist in covering this expenditure. Standard forms (which must be used), are available for this purpose.
A request for an advance must be completed and authorised by the Head of Department. The form should then be submitted to the Cashier, who will then order the foreign currency/travellers cheques from Barclays Bank.

Employees are required to provide two forms of identification one of which must be their passport. A copy of the authorisation will be sent to the employee's department as confirmation that the arrangements are in place.
