All Friendship Force ambassadors are required to secure adequate travel and medical insurance to cover emergencies during their journeys.

This requirement can be fulfilled in one of the following ways:

  2. By purchasing a separate travel insurance package from the ambassador’s preferred insurance provider.

The Ambassador Application and Agreement form includes the following statement:

“I hereby agree to secure adequate travel and medical insurance for the duration of the journey.”

Evidence of appropriate cover must be shown to your Ambassador Coordinator (alias Exchange Director) prior to commencing travel on the journey.
