A: Visa requirements vary depending on the program location and on your nationality. If one is required, state that you are on vacation so that you avoid having to get a work permit. Passports are almost always required, and given the amount of time it can take to process, volunteers should plan on securing passports at least 3 months before their program begins. Visas can take just as long to secure, so it is a good idea to apply for a passport as soon as possible. Your program details should specify any Visa requirements. If you are unsure, please feel free to contact Globe Aware offices by phone or email to get more specific information. Pleased consult VISA Requirements for more information - click here.
