Visas

You may find that you require a visa to gain entry into the country of your choice. Different destination countries have different visa requirements depending on factors such as your length of stay, your reasons for entering the country, and whether you will be obtaining paid work during your time in the country. Changing Worlds will supply you with any advice you need with regards to the visas you require for your chosen destination, and we will make information available to you to assist with your application.

It is important that you check your visa requirements well in advance of your travel date as, with many tourist and working holiday visas, you will need to submit an application to the relevant consulate, embassy or high commission before your travel date. In some cases, entry to your destination country will be granted at immigration on arrival without having to apply for a visa before the departure date for your travels.

Visas differ depending on your chosen destination country, and will allow you to enter the country for a specific period of time. Entry regulations and visa requirements are subject to change so do check with your Travel Advisor and on the consulate, embassy or high commission website for your destination country in the run-up to your trip, as most official websites will publish all relevant up-to-date information. It is hugely important to understand the visa requirements before travelling, and make the required application in good time to avoid any problems at immigration when entering your destination country.

With all visa applications, it is important that you have sufficient space available in your passport for the relevant visas required for your travels, and that your passport is valid for at least six months after your planned date of return.

For more information on visa requirements for all countries, visit the Visa HQ website through the following links: www.visahq.co.uk (for UK residents) or www.visahq.com (for residents of any nations)

Working Visas  
For those of you intending to gain paid work whilst on your travels to help with funding your trip, or to get yourself out of some financial difficulties whilst overseas, then it is likely you will require a country-specific work permit or working holiday visa. Changing Worlds will again supply any relevant information about work visa requirements for your chosen destination country; however, we recommend checking with the consulate, embassy or high commission for your destination country and finding out more about the destination's key points with regards to working in that country, to determine whether a work permit or working visa is compulsory.

  • On arrival, I felt as unprepared as can be, knowing no one, having no plans nor ideas of how to get along in New Zealand really. The in-country team did it all for me. Organise my trip. Booking it. Coming from experienced backpackers you know what's going on and getting to know awesome people from all around the world and maybe even some mates to travel with.

    Jack Johnston , Teaching, Costa Rica

  • What a Blast! I can honestly say that I could not have had a better time in Costa Rica as I did. Everyone was so friendly, helpful and up for a laugh, all making it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone, and might even come back at some point in the near future!
    Danny McVey , Teaching, Costa Rica
     
  • I had a really great time in Costa Rica, honing my Spanish linguistic skills, and I really improved over the 2 weeks that I spent out there. I would like to thank all of the in-country staff for all the effort they put in, it was an intense and thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience.
    Lewis Worthington , Languages, Costa Rica
     
  • This has been by far the most rewarding holiday I have been on. I'll be the first to admit that the idea of an educational holiday didn't at first appeal to me, but the improvements I made in the four weeks I spent out there means that my confidence in my Spanish has improved immensely.
    Charlie Jones , Languages, Costa Rica
     
  • Costa Rica is not only a truly stunning country with welcoming, hospitable people, but it is also where I conquered my 'phobia' of speaking Spanish, and for this I am incredibly grateful. Such a rewarding and exhilarating experience in a wonderful country.
    Max Foster , Languages, Costa Rica
     
  • Easily the most rewarding trip I have ever undertaken! To see the progress the local kids made in your time out there, under your tutelage, was so inspiring! Would highly recommend it!
    Joe Taylor , Teaching, Costa Rica
     
  • What a trip! Spending 12 weeks in the stunning Costa Rican countryside, would have been a reward enough, but the bonds I made with my fellow travelling companions will last a lifetime, and my pride in my class of kids at the local school and the progress they made is a constant source of inspiration.
    Brett McCallum , Teaching, Costa Rica
     
  • I honestly couldn't have had a better time in Costa Rica, and the short time that I spent there with my new found friends will be remembered with treasured memories. Also, the challenge of helping local kids to improve impressively in a short space of time, was a reward in itself.
    Callum Sutton , Teaching, Costa Rica
     
  • "To be able to work behind the scenes on a game reserve in Africa has been a dream come true. Would love to do this all over again."
    Emma Agness , Wildlife & Conservation, South Africa
     
  • "It was great to be able to work with the baby animals and also get a sense of how a reserve operates to keep conservation and tourism positive."
