Checklist for Travelers

Ready to go?!  Here’s your checklist of things to do:

  1. Let us know you’re on-board.  Contact us directly or sign up for the mailing list here.
  2. Apply for a passport (this can take several months).
  3. Immunizations.  (Get more info about our experience with immunizations and the choices most travelers make.)
  4. Submit Children’s HopeChest travel application here.
  5. Review Children’s HopeChest travel policy.
  6. Purchase airline tickets. (We plan to purchase airline tickets as a group in April or May, about 2-3 months before the trip. These usually run around $1200-1500, but the cost can vary.)
  7. Make payments to Children’s HopeChest for ground fees.  (Click here for full cost breakdown and payment schedule.)
  8. Pack!  (Click here for a detailed packing list and recommendations.)
