Registration and Payment

The Registration Process

  • Click the register button to join a trip and then sign the online waiver. Choose which trip on the registration form. No payment required.
  • Your Team Leader should be in touch within 2 business days, if they have not already, to discuss their trip. Team Leaders must approve each participant who applies to join their team, so be sure to respond to their messages right away in order to gain approval and reserve your spot. Many choose to discuss with the Team Leader first so they have pre-approval.
  • After registering, please reply to the confirmation email with a copy of your Covid vaccination card if you already have been fully vaccinated.
Information to Know Before Registering
  • For safety considerations see the U.S. State Department travel advisories.
  • For national Covid entry requirements, see the Covid-19 Country Specific Information from the U.S. State Department.
  • Team Leaders have the option to include from the outset a Covid vaccination requirement for anyone who wishes to join their team. This detail can usually be found by clicking on the Team Leader’s name in the trip listings, or else you may contact the Team Leader or us to inquire.   

After registering, you’ll receive essential trip information from:

  • Your registration confirmation email, which you should save and refer back to because it includes links to:
    • Your Fuller Center Country Guidebook
    • Information about your travel insurance
    • Links to your online pre-trip training
  • Your Team Leader
    • If you have not been in touch already, they’ll be in contact with you within a few days of registration to discuss trip expectations, answer any questions, share arrival flight guidelines, and approve your participation.
    • Once approved, you may make your payments
  • Payments
    • Your fee covers in-country food, lodging, transportation, emergency travel medical insurance and a donation. It does not include airfare, team R&R excursions, souvenirs, or any tips you may want to leave.
    • All payments and forms are due 45 days before your trip. Late fees apply.
    • A $400 non-refundable deposit is due within 2 weeks of applying. This applies only to open teams, not churches or schools.
    • Pay online, or by check at the address at the bottom of this page.
    • If your travels keep you away from home before or after the official trip dates, our travel insurance will cover you at an extra cost of $3/day. (This does not apply to Puerto Rico.)
  • Policies
  • Fundraising
    • You may choose to create a fundraising page through our site to cover your fee. Remember that the same deadlines apply, so start fundraising early.
    • Third party fundraising sites like GoFundMe or Facebook cannot be used for our trip fees.

Coordinate with your team leader before purchasing a flight. Teams should arrive together. We provide emergency medical insurance, not trip cancellation insurance, so consider purchasing your own when you purchase your ticket.

And then…
