It is the volunteer’s responsibility to have a valid passport allowing you to leave your home country and travel to the project country. If you do not have a passport, you should initiate the application process immediately. Since the application time can be lengthy, those accepted to a project and with less than two months prior to the trip, should consider requesting expedited service (at a fee) if available. In general, to initiate travel or to obtain a visa, your passport expiration date should be at least 6 months after your planned travel dates, and your passport should have least 3 blank pages. Passport application processes vary widely by country. US travelers please visit the U.S. passport page for details.
