How do I prepare to travel for 4-12 Months?

Planning for a 4-12 month adventure is not a simple task. There are many things that you need to consider and plan for before boarding your first flight. Fortunately, we have years of travel experience to help make the process as seamless as possible.

Remote Year Onboarding Team

Once you decide to join a Remote Year work and travel program, you’ll have access to our best-in-class Onboarding Team. The Onboarding Team draws on the experience of the entire Remote Nation to support you throughout your program, providing you with packing lists, weekly preparation webinars, and support for larger questions like, “What do I do with my apartment?” or, “I can’t leave my pet behind… can I?”

Does Remote Year help with visas?

Consulting an immigration / visa legal professional or getting in touch with the relevant embassy is a reliable way to determine whether you need a visa to travel to the countries on your Remote Year itinerary. Each participant is responsible for determining what, if any, visa is appropriate for them and securing their own visas for each destination on their itinerary, and due to the constantly evolving nature of visa / immigration regulations and the fact that our participants hold passports from many different countries, it is not possible for Remote Year to advise on the visa process. Remote Year will provide travel or accommodation documentation when it is necessary for participants to secure their visas.

What vaccines should I get before leaving for my Remote Year program?

Participants should consult with their doctor and refer to CDC guidelines to determine which vaccines they should receive before traveling on a Remote Year program.
