As the world’s leading international volunteer and intern organisation, 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 need us to organise travel and medical insurance for you, we are more than happy to assist. The additional cost will be added to your programme fees.


If you are an EU citizen going to Cambodia, China, Ethiopia, Ghana, Jamaica (for more than one month), Kenya, Mongolia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand, Togo, or Vietnam you will need to buy a visa. 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 centre 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.
