STEP TWO

COMPLETE AND SUBMIT ADDITIONAL FORMS

In addition to the basic information requested on the online registration form, the registration process will also ask each participant to complete proof of at least $25,000 of medical evacuation insurance as well as submitting flight plans.  Please feel free to use the password you establish at registration to come back to these forms and complete the information as it becomes available.

Medical evacuation insurance can be purchased in conjunction with travel insurance. There are benefits of purchasing travel insurance within the first week of making your initial payment. We have found TravelInsurance.com to be a useful site when shopping for emergency evacuation insurance.

For any minors traveling alone or with only one parent, we also recommend carrying a signed and notarized “Authorization for Minors to Travel” form with you when you travel. For everyone, we recommend carrying with you a hardcopy or digital copy of your passport in the event yours is lost or stolen.

All forms must be submitted no later than 60 days prior to departure.

STEP THREE

AWAIT FURTHER COMMUNICATION

Depending on how early you register and receive your registration confirmation, it may be several weeks/months before you receive more information.  As registration winds down, you will begin to receive a wealth of information and instructions.

Each participant will also receive a manual and travel packet full of invaluable information covering all aspects of the expedition and instructions for participating in an orientation conference call.
