World Vision International

Health Assessment, Passports and Visas

Global Health Risk Assessment:

The Global Health Risk Assessment Programme is designed to evaluate your overall health by responding to a 35 question online questionnaire and then having our 3rd party, International SOS, evaluate your health with the specific location of the assignment and identify any areas of concerns or risks that might arise for your physical well being while on assignment.

You will receive (or have already received) a separate email from your Staffing Administrator with instructions on how to complete the Global Health Risk Assessment.

Passports and Visas:

As a new WVI employee, it is your personal responsibility to make certain that you have a valid passport. A valid passport is one that will not expire in the next 6 months. You will not be allowed to board an international flight with a passport that expires within 6 months. Moreover, if your passport is set to expire during your new assignment, please make the necessary arrangements to renew your passport while in your country of assignment.

In order to travel to your country of assignment, you may need to obtain a transit visa. A transit visa will allow you to travel through one country while on your way to another. Although your Staffing Administrator will assist you when he/she is able, you are responsible for obtaining the appropriate visas that will allow you to travel to your country of assignment. Please make sure that you book visa appointments immediately, as it may take a week or two for your appointments to be scheduled. You are also responsible for making certain that you have enough blank visa pages in your passport to obtain a visa. 

Please use the official name printed on your passport for all travel documents. This will ensure smooth travels and avoid identity confusion at the airport.
