The best sources for aid worker travel information

There are multiple sources available to humanitarian relief and aid workers when they are looking for travel information.

Specific travel information involves:

  • Reading of background information about places where you want to go. The CIA has a great website with a database named World Factbook.
  • Finding out whether your profession is needed in a specific area. At Reliefweb, you will find an excellent source with pre-deployment information and humanitarian job vacancies.
  • Information on visa or other specific border documents. This is, of course, dependent on the country you will work with. CIBT is a great source of information for that!
  • Information on your vaccines or what to pack.
  • More information about your booked flights at Raptim. For this, you can directly contact our offices.
