India is unfortunately known for 'Delhi Belly' (luckily we are not in Delhi!), as well as a myriad of mosquito borne and other diseases. The following page outlines vaccination information, travel insurance and Visa options for you to obtain prior to your trip. Each Ambassador must organise and cover the cost of their own vaccinations. Travel insurance is a compulsory part of the Adventure and, as part of your $3000 crowdfunding target, we will cover the cost of your insurance and work with you to organise and pay for it.
You will all be covered under World Nomads insurance. Please print a copy of your insurance (once received) and please take photos and record VIN #'s for any expensive items such as computers, phones, cameras, etc. The insurance company WILL NOT cover you without these!
If you would like to stay beyond the period of the Adventure it is up to you to let us know. We can organise any extra coverage that may be needed (at your own expense).
We will discuss the Visa situation with you in more detail during the induction.
There are a number of vaccinations that you will need (are highly recommended) for the Adventure. SISP has kindly provided a list of these, which is attached below. They recommend that you obtain ALL shots under 'All Travellers' and 'Trekking' categories. They have also advised that tetanus, diptheria and pertussis are combined in the TPD vaccination.
We recommend that you obtain these as soon as possible as some take some time to take effect and others will need more than one shot before they work effectively. Whether you choose to take these shots is at your own discretion, however we highly recommend getting vaccinated.
