GeoSentinel's definition of business travel is “travel for business or occupational purposes” (1). Business travelers are a distinct type of traveler (2). Researchers are sometimes akin to business travelers in that they are often salaried employees, but they are included in the alternate category of “Missionary/Volunteer/Researcher/Aid Work.” This group's comprised mostly of persons who have chosen to work at these destinations rather than being assigned by an employer to do so.
