Create a trip request in Travel Web (available only if connected to the Bank's intranet) with trip type ‘Benefit’ and sub-type ‘Medical Evacuation’.
For instructions on creating a trip request, refer to the Create Trip (available only if connected to the Bank's intranet) page. The ticket cost will be charged to the staff member’s department and must be limited to the cost of travel between the staff member's duty station and Washington, D.C.
In the unlikely event that a staff member is required and is able to travel on mission to the location of childbirth before the expected due date, then the traveler must use the mission trip request to claim per diem and other eligible expenses. They must use the trip request created for medical travel for childbirth to facilitate payment of grants for the childbirth period.
Submit statement of expenses (SOE) for hotel and subsistence (for a maximum of 10 weeks) with all the relevant documentation, on return to the duty station:
- Air ticket stubs
- Boarding passes
- Hotel receipts
- Actual subsistence receipts
For instructions on submitting an SOE, refer to the Modify Trip/Enter Expenses (available only if connected to the Bank's intranet) page.
Travel, hotel, and subsistence costs incurred are reimbursed at actual costs up to the Washington, D.C., meals, tips, and valet (MTV) rate/limit. If the actual cost is lower than the Washington, D.C., MTV per diem rates, the reimbursement will be at the lower amount.
If the staff member's spouse decides to accompany him/her to the location of the childbirth, this will be at a personal expense. If the airline charges for a child seat while returning to the duty station, this is also at a personal expense.
