PASSPORTS AND VISAS

WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED TO TRAVEL?

Dependent on where you’re travelling and your nationality, you'll need a valid passport and may also need visas to enter into certain countries - please check this well in advance of your trip departure date. Some countries also require passports to have 3-6 months left on them before the given expiry date, so be sure to double check this before booking your travels.

HOW DO I GET A PASSPORT?

If you’re getting a passport for the first time you’ll need to fill out a passport application form, which you can download from your government's website, local post office or government buildings, dependent on your country of residence. You’ll also need colored photographs of your full face against a plain white or off-white background. There is a charge for passports and they normally take 3-6 weeks to be approved and delivered (depending on your country of residence), so make sure you check this out before making any travel plans.

DO I NEED A VISA?

Visas are super important and are essential for entering certain countries. It’s up to you to be responsible for obtaining all necessary visas prior to the departure of your trip. Run this by your travel agent (if applicable) or check out a visa service well in advance to determine if/which visas you will require and how to obtain them. Remember, visas can take up to 6 weeks and a fee is normally charged, so no leaving this one till the last minute. We recommend you apply for all visas through your travel agent or visa service before commencing your travel journey.
