Volunteer Teachers are required to arrange their own South African Visa prior to departure and are responsible for applying for this, as well as a passport, with enough time for it to arrive prior to departure. They will also need to check with their Doctor or GP to ensure they have had the most up to date travel vaccinations required. Global Handprints is responsible for ensuring your safety and wellbeing at all times however, you will need to purchase travel insurance from home. We will ask for your policy details prior to arrival and ask that you have the information on hand at all times while you’re with us.
