If you join an Open Doors International trip as an individual, you will be traveling with other Christians from around the world. These types of trips are best suited for seasoned international travelers.
If you organize a team from your church, you decide who goes! Each team member must complete the application process and be approved by Open Doors. A team can be as small as five members to a maximum of twelve.
The decision on where and when to travel is made by our field staff. It is based on safety and opportunities within the restricted country.
Once team members' applications have been approved, we will train and prepare you for the trip. You will be supplied with all the information needed.
Trip expenses vary but the average cost is approximately $1500.00. This includes your accommodations, meals and in-country transportation. In addition, each traveler is responsible for acquiring their international flight to the country visiting, passport, visa, in-country medical insurance, and any incidentals such as sightseeing and personal items.
Each traveler is responsible to cover the entire cost of the trip 30 days prior to departure.
Travelers must be at least 18 years or older and have committed their life to Christ. If any member is over the age of 65, a medical release from a doctor is required. The maximum age to travel with Open Doors is 70 years.
