From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A congressional delegation (also CODEL or codel) is an official visit abroad taken by a member or members of the United States Congress.

To schedule a congressional delegation, a member has to apply to the relevant committee chair, who then writes to the appropriate federal agency requesting funds and support for the trip.

Some congressional delegation trips have been criticized as "junkets."
