AGWM leadership recommends all individuals involved in short term work to prepare for the elevated risk of travel abroad by completing a brief online training here. This important step in your preparation process is designed to be completed individually. The $28 enrollment fee gives you access to information that will increase your awareness of the unique challenges you may encounter through the course of your journey, providing safety and security tips and tools designed to protect you, your teammates and those you are called to serve.
- Pack! To avoid COSTLY FINES and POSSIBLE IMPRISONMENT, please read the U.S. Department of Homeland Security/Transportation Security Administration list of PROHIBITED ITEMS for airline travel. Also, check with your airline for any restrictions they may have.
- For Visa and Safety information specific to your country, please visit the U.S. State Department Bureau of Consular Affairs website. This website will give you information on entry/exit requirements, safety and security, crime, medical facilities and health information, traffic safety, and embassy locations.
