*For all international trips, a valid US passport is required for travel. Your passport should be valid for at least six months beyond the return date of the trip you plan to take.
*Travel to Ghana requires a Visa to enter Ghana (the church will order this once we have all passports in hand), shots (Hep A&B, typhoid, yellow fever, updated tetanus), and malaria medication.) You will also need to carry a round of antibiotics. These shots can be purchased at a discount at the New Hanover County Health Department travel clinic or from an infectious disease physician. You do not have to be a resident of the county in which you request vaccinations. You are encouraged to schedule an appointment to receive these vaccinations as soon as possible as some of them must be ordered once your appointment has been scheduled.
