This is a checklist of all the information you will need before completing your Information Form which must to be completed up to 45 days before you travel.

Please read the following details before completing your information form. If you have any queries, please ask your student advisor before you begin the form. For more information of each of these point please see: Student Information Page

  • Visa Information

    If you are travelling on a British passport you will need to collect your visa on arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport and you will need to pay US$50.

    If you are travelling on a US passport you can also collect a visa on arrival and you will need to pay US$100.

    Some people will need to apply for their visa in advance, so if you are travelling on a non-British or US passport please research visa regulations, and ask your Student Advisor if you are still not sure.

    Once you have arrived in Kilimanjaro you will also require a Short Term Resident Permit to take part in your placement. This permit is what allows you to undertake a shadowing placement in a hospital and is required by the Tanzanian Government. The permit costs US$200, which will be collected along with your passport by a member of Medical Projects staff once you have arrived. They will organise your permit and return your passport to you.

  • Health

    The form will ask you to complete a Health Declaration. If you are 18 years old or over you can submit this yourself, if you are younger than 18 your parent or guardian will need to complete this section.

    When completing the form please ensure you have details of any current or previous health conditions or medications, allergies and dietary requirements.

    Before travelling, please make an appointment with your GP to discuss your vaccinations and anti-malarials.

  • Insurance

    You will need to source suitable travel insurance which will cover you medically and for spending your time in the hospital. Further details and suggestions can be found on the student information page

  • Personal Information

    The form will ask for:

    1. Emergency contact details of your parent or guardian. You will need to submit their name, your relationship to them, their contact number and their e-mail address.

    2. Upload a scanned copy of the information page of your passport

    3. Upload a passport-style profile picture. This will be used on your hospital ID badge so please ensure it is a suitable image.

Once you have collected these details, please click "Submit Information Form" to enter your information.

***If you are under 18, you will need a parent/guardian to be with you whilst completing the form, as there is a section which requires their consent and signature. ***
