It is strongly recommended people requiring assistance be accompanied by a companion who is capable of and totally responsible for providing assistance.
REQUIRED TRAVEL DOCUMENTATION:
If you are a U.S. citizen, you will need a valid passport for entry into a foreign country and upon return to the United States. Passports must be valid three months beyond your intended departure date and have one to two blank pages remaining. We recommend six months expiration to be on the safe side. Allow sufficient time to have your application processed if you are applying for a new passport or renewing an expired passport. Visit www.travel.state.gov for more details. Visas are required for citizens of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Egypt. Travelers who are 17 years old or younger, when traveling with a sole parent, should carry a notarized letter of permission to leave the country signed by the absent parent.
If you are not a U.S. citizen, please check with the embassy of the country you are visiting for information on documentation requirements.
