Visas, Insurance and VaccinationsTake me straight to the Application Form
If you are an Australian citizen going to Argentina, Cambodia, China, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mongolia, Nepal, Senegal, Tanzania, Togo or Vietnam you will need to buy a visa regardless of how long you intend to stay. Other destinations may have visa fees for stays over a specified period of time. Currently, prices vary according to destination and duration. Our Visa Team will provide you with detailed information about the specific visa requirements after you have applied.
Our insurance cover includes medical and emergency travel expenses, luggage and personal effects, money, personal accident, personal liability, cancellation and curtailment, rescue and assistance, legal expenses and travel delay.
Cover becomes effective once full payment has been received.
Please note that you are covered by insurance from the the time you leave your home country until you arrive back, ensuring your whole trip is covered. However, your project start date won't commence until you arrive in your destination. For example, if you sign up for a 4 week project, your project starts the day you arrive in-country, but insurance will still cover you for all international travel.
Extra leisure travel insurance can be arranged for an additional premium. You might need this if you're intending to travel before or after your project.
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.
