How do I obtain the correct visa for my chosen country?
While Love Volunteers' pre departure packages include information on visa requirements for specific destinations, each traveler is responsible for checking and confirming the visa requirements based on the passport they hold, and the country in which they are traveling.
The best way to do this is to contact your nearest Embassy, Foreign Office, or State Department. They will have the most recent information of visas, passport requirements and work permits (if required).
There are some general tips:
- You will need a current passport and it is recommended that you travel with a passport that has at least 6 months validity.
- You should make sure you have at least 2 free pages for visas.
- If you are making connecting flights remember to check if a transit visa is required.
- Always travel with your passport and documentation available to you, plus have copies in your bags and available to you through your email account.
