As the world’s leading international volunteer and intern organization, Projects Abroad takes the safety and well-being of our volunteers and interns very seriously.

We can also advise you on specific visa requirements.


Your safety is important to us. That’s why you’re required to obtain appropriate travel and medical insurance that will cover you for the entire duration of your project and travels abroad.  

Your travel insurance policy must include emergency medical including repatriation, personal accident, personal liability and loss of baggage.

If you have any questions about obtaining insurance, your Destination Expert will be on hand to offer advice as part of your pre-departure process


For many destinations, you will have to buy a visa before traveling. In some cases, you can buy a visa at your port of entry into the destination. We will give you the relevant documents and advice. Currently, prices for visas vary from $30 to $400 according to destination.

Our Visa Team will provide you with detailed information about the specific visa requirements after you have applied.


We advise you to consult your GP or health center for up-to-date information about vaccinations. Since we are not medical experts, our advice on vaccinations and other medical matters can only be informal.
