In a job offer, I encountered a question "What is your travel status". What does "travel status" mean in this context?

The company offering is from a different country than the receiver of the offer. The receiver would be working remotely.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

"A business proposal" does not give adequate context for an answer. Without context, a "meaning-in-context" question will soon be closed. – jwpat7 Feb 22 '12 at 9:34
@jwpat7 I am not sure I understand your position. What would be adequate context? – ipavlic Feb 22 '12 at 9:41
@ipavlic: explain more about the "business proposal." Who wrote it? For what purpose? And what about the question at hand? In what section of the document was it found? – J.R. Feb 22 '12 at 10:04
@J.R. I've added some more information, but I think both you and Mehper understood the question correctly. – ipavlic Feb 22 '12 at 11:07
Do not guess. These terms have specific definitions which are inviolable and not open to interpretations. Where no reference is available, ask: the source of the job offer (?the prospective employer). – Kris Feb 22 '12 at 12:12

I guess they're asking whether you are available to travel for business trips. In some job interviews, they may ask you how much of the time you would be available for business trips, i.e. 25%, 50%, 100% etc.

It might also be asking whether or not you would be available for international travel (passports in place, etc.). – J.R. Feb 22 '12 at 10:05
