We invite you to #BeTheGood and Join an International Medical Relief Team!
Dates, Costs & Arrangements
- IMR reserves the right to depart or return 24 hours on either side of the published trip dates. Please plan your vacation time accordingly.
- Trip dates, including international travel time, are finalized approximately 12 weeks prior to departure when the IMR group tickets are purchased.
- Only committed team members will receive the flight itinerary, trip itinerary, and departure information to maintain your safety and security while traveling.
- All costs are in $USD.
- Costs are all-inclusive: Your donation will allow International Medical Relief will make all arrangements for your stay including all ground expenses (lodging, transportation, food, tipping, and included sightseeing), clinic and professional registrations and licensing and set up, security, translation, supplies, and medication.
- Excluded costs may be seen under the “Trip Info” tab within the trip you are applying for.
- You may choose to purchase your own international airfare by choosing “independent” for your flight choice and donating the minimum amount required for the trip. This choice allows you to extend your stay, book directly from your home airport, or choose routings with shorter travel times.
- You may choose to have IMR purchase your international airfare for you by choosing “group flight” for your flight choice.
- The group flight choice includes an economical routing which may result in longer layovers and travel time and a premier routing with less layovers. This choice also offers the option to apply for a $300 bag scholarship on your IMR account page. The routing can not be customized.
- Group flight ticket holders are responsible for purchasing their own round trip transportation to the US departure/arrival airport.
