What if I don’t have a passport?

If you do not have a passport, apply immediately for a passport. If your passport expires less than six months after your departure date, you will need to renew your passport as soon as possible. Additionally, if you have a non-U.S. passport, you are responsible for finding out if a visa is required for you to travel to a specific country.

If there a leader of another trip is still looking for people for his or her team, then he or she may contact you to see if you are interested in joining their mission team.

It is imperative for team unity and for liability reasons that all trip team members travel together. Therefore you may not travel to another destination or extend the length of your stay.

 

 

Is Safety an Issue?

We have taken every precaution possible to mitigate unnecessary risks involved with our trips. We continually monitor the personal, social, political, and environmental factors that might heighten the security issues of our teams and consider the security of our teams very important.
