Travel Insurance:

You must arrange your own travel insurance for this program. Your travel agent can arrange this at the time of booking flights. Check with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs for travel advice and warnings.

Travel documents:

You will need a passport valid for at least 6 months and you must apply for a visa for Ethiopia.


When travelling, you will have to carry your own luggage on most occasions, for instance at airports and into accommodation. Be aware of the size of your bags and try to have wheeled or backpack luggage. Mostly people tend to overpack! There will be ample opportunity to wash clothes or buy articles should you forget to bring an item.


You are advised to visit your GP for advice about travelling in Ethiopia and what medications you may need to take with you. For more specialist travel advice you can visit the Travellers Medical and Vaccination Centres in your State.

The Centre for Social Response needs to be assured that you are fit and healthy for travel and that any pre-existing illness can be managed adequately and will not affect the running of the program.
